Just a note that I will start my three part webcast, SQL Server, Storage and You next week April 13th at 2PM CST. I’m excited to have this opportunity to speak to a much wider audience on something that I love so much. When Idera approached me last year about doing a three part series I was nervous to say the least. I’ve always taught in a live setting with students or attendees right in front of me. Luckily, this isn’t my first time doing something like this. As some of you know I was actually a mass communications/theater major in college and worked in radio. I’m having to reach back and dust off some of these skills. I am confident that it will go smoothly. Registration is free and they record the session for later viewing as well.
Just like building a house we must first lay the foundation. This presentation will take you through low level fundamentals that we will use later on as we grow your storage knowledge. Starting with how data moves inside your server. How hard disks work. You will also get a primer on RAID configuration and how to mitigate drive failures and data loss. Wrapping up with a file system primer and how to configure your storage with SQL Server in mind.
Thanks again to Idera and MSSQLTips!
