SQL Server vs. Oracle: The Throwdown!

Come see David Klee (@kleegeek) and Joe Grant (@dba_jedi) in a “discussion” with a competitive comparison between SQL Server and Oracle in a highly interactive dynamic session. Each database engine has its place in the IT world, and we will discuss which is the right tool for the job. The goal is to be objective and compare features, strengths and weaknesses, and editions. Check your opinions at the door and come join us for an educational session!

SQL Saturday – Chicago – April 13

Database Health and Performance

Sure, your SQL Server is up and running. Is it healthy? Is it performing the best that it can? Where are your performance bottlenecks? In an emergency, can you objectively demonstrate where a performance problem lies? This dynamic dialog session by David Klee (@kleegeek) will present a solid process for checking your environment’s overall health and performance levels as well as solutions for common problems. Some of the items focused on include dynamic management views (DMVs), Windows Perfmon, and disk performance tools such as IOMeter and SQLIO.

SQLPASS Performance Virtual Chapter

It’s All About the Performance, Right?

Just about anyone can click through a SQL Server installation and get it working. But, it is not running close to efficient, and as the workloads grow, it will only get worse. This session by David Klee (@kleegeek) provides valuable details on how to tweak and tune your SQL Server installations to ensure maximum performance, as well as tips on capacity management so you know when you need to add more hardware to take your server to the next level.
