"The economic crunch is far from over and so many companies are making do with aging hardware and skeleton IT staff. This presents serious difficulties, especially when there isn't a seasoned DBA in control of SQL Server," said Paul Randal. "We're going to cover a lot of information that companies can use to streamline operations and performance without making major application changes—lots of areas for people to dig deeper and get more knowledge to help avoid having to spend precious budget. One of the things we'll highlight is a design pattern that often goes unnoticed but causes real havoc with server performance and availability."
