In the August 13th 2009 meeting of the Ohio North SQL Server Users Group (ONSSUG),
Paul Randal and his wife Kimberly Tripp, will run you through their top-ten database
maintenance recommendations, with a lot of tips and tricks along the way. This top ten
list distilled from almost 30 years combined experience working with SQL Server customers
and are geared towards making your databases more performance, more available, easier to
manage (to save you time!). Everything in this session will be practical and applicable
to a wide variety of databases. Topics covered and myths debunked include: backups, shrinks,
fragmentation, statistics, and much more! This presentation’s focus will be on SQL Server 2005
but we'll explain some of the key differences for 2000 and 2008 as well.
