Old posts are like unicorns. You might see them just once, but it’d sure be nice to have them come back around every not and then. This connection might not make that much sense, but face it… there’s no such things as unicorns, so I can say what I want about them.
Anyways, it’s Friday and time to take a look at posts from this week in previous years. Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s not just as interesting. Who knows, something here might be just what you are looking for, like a chocolate unicorn in your coffee.

Find all you need to know about indexes in one book. Expert Performance Indexing for SQL Server 2012 is a deep dive into perhaps the single-most important facet of good performance: indexes, and how to best use them. The book begins in the shallow waters with explanations of the types of indexes and how they are stored in databases. Moving deeper into the topic, and further into the book, you will look at the statistics that are accumulated both by indexes and on indexes. All of this will help you progress towards properly achieving your database performance goals.
