Top 10 DBA Mistakes on SQL Server

SQL Server encompasses a wide variety of domains – administrative, development, and design.  But despite years of experience with relational databases, SQL Server practitioners frequently make the same mistakes over and over again.  Wouldn’t you like to learn about those mistakes before they ever happen?  This session will answer questions like:

  • Who do DBAs and SAN Admins introduce major performance problems into high-performance SQL Server instances?
  • How do default settings in the product make Microsoft SQL Server perform poorly?
  • What are the downsides to using the SQL Server Management Studio GUI exclusively?

There are a short list of mistakes that, if you know of them in advance, will make your life much easier.  These mistakes are the “low hanging fruit” of application design, development, and administration.  Once you apply the lessons learned from this session, you’ll find yourself performing at a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness than before.
