As SQL Excursions is getting closer, I wanted to talk a little about the sessions that I’ll be presenting at the event which I’ll be doing over this week.  The sessions that I’ll be presenting are:

  • Storage
  • Virtualization
  • High Availability
  • Indexing Internals
  • Server Consolidation

All told I’ll be presenting for about 8 hours over the two days, with Tom LaRock (blog | @sqlrockstar) presenting over the other 8 hours.  Because this isn’t a traditional conference not all the sessions will be locked in at an hour long.  Some may be longer, some shorter depending on how the day moves along.  The goal with these sessions is to get the questions answered, not to get the session presented in the time allotted.

The first session on the list above is Storage, so I’ll start with that session for today’s blog post.  During this session on storage I’ll be talking about some of the more advanced storage options which are available for storage array tuning as well as data replication and how these can be used to improve your storage performance not just for your SQL Servers, but overall for your entire environment as well as to reduce your backup windows.

If you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time.

See you in Napa September 22nd-24th,
