Many DBAs take routine database maintenance for granted. What they don’t understand is that the cumulative effect of poor database maintenance can significantly hurt performance. In this session, you will learn the key things all DBAs need to know in order to maintain their databases at peak performance.
You will learn about a comprehensive checklist you can use to verify a SQL Server’s health, which you can use to help you determine if the instance is running optimally and is highly available.
In this session, I will demonstrate, step-by-step, the entire process of restoring all of the system and user databases from a damaged instance to a new instance.
