Healthy SQL

is about ensuring the ongoing performance health of a SQL Server

database. An unhealthy database is not just an inconvenience; it can

bring a business to its knees. And if you are the database

administrator, the health of your SQL Server implementation can be a

direct reflection on you. It's in everyone's best interest to have a

healthy SQL implementation. Healthy SQL is built around the concept of a

medical checkup, giving you the tools you need to assess the current

health of your database and take action to improve upon that health and

maintain good performance to your business.

Healthy SQL

aids in developing a rigorous routine so that you know how healthy your

SQL Server machines are, and how you can keep those same servers healthy

and fit for duty. The book is filled with practical advice and a

time-tested strategy, helping you put together a regimen that will

ensure your servers are healthy, your implementation is fully optimized,

your services are redundant and highly available, and you have a plan

for business continuity in the event of a disaster. If your current

environment doesn't match up with these criteria, then pick up a copy of

Healthy SQL today and start your journey on the road to a fit and tight SQL Server deployment.
