Speaking at PASS Database Administration Virtual Chapter

I will be speaking at the PASS Database Administration Virtual Chapter on February 13, 2013 at 12PM MST. I will be presenting the latest version of my Hardware 301: Diving Deeper into Database Hardware deck.

The LiveMeeting link is here. If you want a chance to win a $50.00 Amazon gift certificate, you need to register here.

Here is the abstract for the presentation:

Hardware 301: Diving Deeper into Database Hardware

Making the right hardware selection decisions is extremely important for database scalability. Having properly sized and configured hardware can both increase application performance and reduce capital expenses dramatically. Unfortunately, there are so many different choices and options available when it comes to selecting hardware and storage subsystems, it is very easy to make bad choices based on outmoded conventional wisdom. This session will give you a framework for how to pick the right hardware and storage subsystem for your workload type. You will learn how to evaluate and compare key hardware components, such as processors, chipsets, and memory. You will also learn how to evaluate and compare different types of storage subsystems for different database workload types. This session will give you the knowledge you need to make sure you get the best performance and scalability possible from your hardware budget!

I really enjoy talking about SQL Server hardware, so this should be a lot of fun. I hope you are able to take the time to listen to the presentation!

    Hi Glenn

    Do you know if your presentation will be made available online following the live session? Unfortunately due to the time zone difference I won’t be available at the time of the live session.

    Thanks
    Chris
