Putting a Better SQL Server in Production

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time / 2:00 PM CT / Noon PT

Problems come up everyday that could have been avoided by simply configuring SQL Server appropriately before using it. The tricky part is knowing what to change and how to determine the correct setting. Some settings require knowledge of how SQL Server works internally and how the setting affects performance. We'll take a look at the default settings in SQL Server that should be changed before a SQL Server is put into production and provide guidelines on how to determine the best settings with which to go into production.
