I’m thrilled to announce my preconference training session ahead of this year’s virtual PASS Data Community Summit, held during the week of November 8-12, 2021. This event is available for registration at https://passdatacommunitysummit.com. I’ll see you there!
Virtualization has been the norm in datacenters for years, and SQL Server in virtual machines in the cloud are nothing new. However, implemented incorrectly, your SQL Server performance can take a massive dive. Are you sure that your SQL Servers running at optimal performance? This full-day boot camp covers all aspects of performance engineering for virtualized SQL Servers on all virtualized platforms, including Azure IaaS, VMware and Hyper-V. We will review critical topics such as virtualization layers, VM construction, NUMA, resource scheduling, query parallelization and physical server alignment, “right-sizing,” and storage performance-oriented presentation. New features such as SQL Server containers and hybrid cloud architectures will be demonstrated. Backups, high availability, and disaster recovery guidelines will also be reviewed. Most importantly, this boot camp informs you on methods and terminology to help you work better with your infrastructure team to streamline your critical SQL Server performance.
