You're a DBA or database developer working on a big (or even big-ish -- doesn't have to be huge) database. Your end-users are doing all sorts of data analysis, and even though you have a pretty beefy server, your queries just don't seem to run as fast as they should.
The reason (I bet)? Your queries aren't taking full advantage of the CPU power available in today's servers. SQL Server has powerful parallel processing capabilities, but left to its own devices (and defaults) you're never going to see the full potential. Luckily, this can be fixed. You can make your queries much faster. (Often an order of magnitude or more!) And I can show you how.
Join me in Boston or in Chicago, the Friday before the upcoming SQL Saturday events in those cities, and we'll go deep into parallel processing. You'll learn about Windows server and how it deals with processes and threads, about SQLOS and its thread scheduling internals, how the SQL Server query processor works, and how you can use all of this knowledge to make your queries run faster and your server behave more consistently, even under load.
These full-day seminars cost only $150 and include lunch, coffee, and a printed course book -- plus a full day of intense content.
