Another year and staring it off right! I’ll be speaking at SQLSaturday in Houston, TX on the fundamentals of storage and SQL Server. I love this talk. I give it regularly and it’s like an old friend to me. Near and dear to my heart, IO subsystems and SQL Server have been my bread and butter for quite a while. So, if you are going to Houston come find me and say hi. There is only one thing more than educating people, and that is getting to know those people.
Understanding SQL Server and Storage Systems
The most important part of your SQL Server is also the slowest, Storage. This talk will take you through the fundamentals of your server’s Disk I/O System. From how hard drives work, through RAID configurations, and how to configure the file system. This session should give you a solid foundation over storage systems and help you understand why they are slow and how to overcome some of their limitations.
- Understand the physical characteristics of IO hardware.
- Understand the fundamentals of RAID.
- Understand how to configure the file system.
See you there!
