    Getting a Grip – Adventures in Multi-Server Management
    Jason Strate
    3
    Today’s SQL Server environments have seen an explosion of databases without a similar increase in DBAs. This change has allowed management of non-mission-critical databases to interfere with mission-critical databases. Beginning with SQL Server 2008, a number of tools were introduced to help you take better control of your SQL Server environment and deal with “database sprawl.” Some of these tools include the advent of Policy Based Management to the addition of the Utility Control Point, in SQL Server 2008 R2. In this session, we’ll take a look at the tools already at your disposal and some free CodePlex tools that you can use to get a grip on your SQL Server environment.

    Increasing Performance of Your .NET Applications: Part 1
    Ben Hoelting
    4
    Caching is not new in .NET. However, it has been expanded on in 4.0. Part 1 will focus on how to implement caching to improve performance on the server and the client. Silverlight has changed the game in regards to caching. Silverlight provides access to Isolated Storage that allows us to cache data client side and not even make a round trip to the server. The demos will validate the benefits of the caching as well as demonstrate some of the pitfalls you might face when developing a caching strategy. The demoes start with a basic Silverlight application and add caching support step by step. This session will explore some of the traditional caching paradigms as well as introduce some new ones related to Silverlight.

    Getting Started With SQL Azure
    Glenn Alan Berry
    5
    SQL Azure is Microsoft's solution for hosting basic SQL Server relational databases in the cloud. Microsoft continues to add new features in each Azure Service Update that makes SQL Azure a more viable solution. For smaller databases that don't require features such as Reporting Services, Analysis Services, or Full Text Search, it can be an easy to use technology that can save lots of money in hardware, license and maintenance costs. This session shows you how to configure, connect to, and manage a SQL Azure database, both from SQL Server Management Studio and from a .NET application, and it gives best practices and tips on how to get the most benefit from SQL Azure.

    Why Data Warehousing Projects Fail (And What You Can Do About it)
    Craig Utley
    6
    Is your organization planning to build a data warehouse or BI solution? Data warehousing projects, like many large IT projects, have high failure rates. While the exact rate of failure for data warehousing projects is difficult to pin down, the causes of these failures fall into a small number of categories. It is obviously possible to successfully complete a data warehousing project and deliver value to the business. Craig Utley has seen Microsoft BI solutions in various states of completeness at over 30 companies worldwide and has seen some awesome successes and some spectacular failures. This session addresses the reasons data warehousing projects fail and how you can succeed in overcoming these obstacles.

    There's more to know about storage?
    Denny Cherry

    Increasing Performance of Your .NET Applications: Part 2
    Ben Hoelting
    4
    Part 1 focused on how to implement caching to improve performance on the server and the client. Part 2 will focus on caching data on the client for a different reason. Server side caching is important, but some applications need to work even when a network connection to the server is not available. This is especially true when running a Silverlight application in out of browser mode. With so many Wi-Fi hot spots and 3\4G networks these days the need to run disconnected is diminishing. The new requirement that is becoming more prevalent is the need to store data locally to increase performance. The size of today’s data is beginning to clog up the network bandwidth and developers are turning to client side data storage to reduce the traffic and speed up their applications. There are many different synchronization options to accomplish client side data storage, no matter what your reason for doing it. One of which is the new Sync Framework from Microsoft. At the end of this presentation we will explore this technology and compare it with other techniques for data synchronization and client side caching.

    Many aspects of data warehouse design are so familiar that we take them for granted. In this session we’re going to go deeper on some of these: surrogate keys, staging areas, slowly changing dimensions, and fact tables. Each of these subjects, however accustomed we are to them, is not quite so simple as they may appear. For beginners and experts, this session takes your thinking about the data warehouse to the next level.

    Do It Right: Best Practices for Analysis Services 2005 and 2008
    Craig Utley
    6
    Are you seeking practical, in-depth technical advice for building a BI solution using SSAS? Analysis Services changed tremendously with the advent of SQL Server 2005. It introduced a new way of building dimensions and cubes that required a new way of modeling the solution. This session examines the best practices for properly designing cubes for performance and usability. It discusses some high-level topics but also looks at advanced topics such as alternative approaches to many-to-many dimensions, SCOPE statements, aggregation design, scalability issues, processing techniques, server properties, and more. Craig Utley has been working with Microsoft’s BI products for 11 years and is a former Program Manager with the SQL Server Customer Advisory Team (SQLCAT), where he worked with some of the largest Analysis Services installations worldwide. In this session he brings his real-world experience with large, complex SSAS projects and presents best practices uncovered as companies deploy and use Analysis Services.

    Getting SQL Service Broker Up and Running
    Denny Cherry
    2
    "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and 2008 include a fantastic feature that few people understand or use. That feature is the Microsoft SQL Server Service Broker. The SQL Service Broker is one of the least used features within the database engine, and that lack of use is simply from last of knowledge about the feature. In this session we’ll dig into how to configure the service broker for not only intra-database message queuing, but database to database queuing as well as server to server database queuing. We will also dig into a real life scenario where the SQL Server Service Broker was used to do ETL from an OLTP database to an OLAP database in near real time for near real time reporting. By the end of this session you'll understand where SQL Service Broker is the right fit to be used, and you'll hopefully be ready to deploy it within your environment. Learn about the SQL Service Broker database objects Learn how to send and receive messages within a databaseLearn how to send and receive messages between servers"

    Using Data Compression and Backup Compression to Improve Performance
    Glenn Alan Berry
    2
    Native Data Compression and Native Backup Compression are two very useful features that were added with SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition. Both of these features were improved in SQL Server 2008 R2, yet many database professionals are not familiar with how to use them effectively to reduce I/O requirements and improve overall performance. Modern multi-core processors make various forms of compression a much easier choice in many situations. Knowing how to determine which indexes are good candidates for data compression is extremely important if you want to get the best results. This session will give you real-world, practical examples and guidelines for how to take advantage of both data compression and backup compression.

    Introducing Attribute Discretization in Analysis Services
    Bill Pearson
    5

    Attribute discretization is an often overlooked feature in Analysis Services that allows us to automatically create a manageable number of groups of attribute values that are clearly separated by boundaries. We can use discretization as a means of grouping contiguous values into sets of discrete values, via a system-generated collection of consecutive dimension members known as member groups. Discretization can help us to make it easier for information consumers to work with large numbers of possible attribute member values. In this session, we will discuss the varied options, the design (and other) considerations involved in the discretization of attributes, and best practices surrounding the use of this capability. Our focus will be upon the general exploitation of discretization to provide consumer-friendly support for the selection and delivery of enterprise data.

    Building An Incremental Archive With SSIS
    Jason Strate

    Archiving production data can at times be a pain. The business may want some of the data or all of the data. They could want the latest version or all versions of the data. They could want 15 tables from the database and then 200 tables next week. All of these variations can at times drive us mad with building the correct solution. In this session we’ll review an incremental archiving solution. This solution is based on a previously deployed process that provided the end users what they needed while maintaining a flexible design.

    2
    Database mirroring is a valuable HA technology that can be an important component in your overall HA/DR solution. This session will cover how to effectively integrate database mirroring, fail-over clustering, log shipping and database snapshots to build a robust HA/DR solution that can meet your recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) requirements. This session goes far beyond the basics, showing you how to programatically set up, maintain and monitor database mirroring for maximum performance and reliability. Mirroring multiple databases on the same instance can be challenging from an administrative perspective, so this session has specific tips and techniques to automate this process, with practical techniques, scripts and tips to help you take advantage of database mirroring as part of an effective HA/DR strategy.
