I Am a DBA - Why Should I Care About SQL Server 2008 R2?


Presenter: Peter Ward, WARDY IT Solutions


Session 01: September 15 at 12:00 GMT

Session Details

Most presentations about SQL Server 2008 R2 focus on features such as Reporting Services now being able to use maps, sparklines, data bars, and indicators to depict data—or how PowerPivot can be used to assemble and create relationships in large amounts of data from different sources. In this session, we won’t even mention Business Intelligence. This session is designed to show DBAs why SQL Server 2008 R2 is in no way a minor release for the Database Engine. We’ll look at a number of new features introduced in R2 for the DBA, including improvements in locking and merging partitions as well as the new Unicode compression. If lifting the hood on the Database Engine is your thing, this is the session for you.
