Learn More About SQL Server IO and Query Tuning in These Webcasts

I'm doing two new webcasts next week on Wednesday, December 19th, one in the morning and the other after lunch.


SSDs are a Game Changer for SQL Server Storage

No, session is not exclusively about SSDs.  But this is my first session on IO and storage tuning that emphasizes SSDs over hard disks.  As Bob Dylan said "Times, they are a'changin'".  This session on Wednesday, December 19th at 11:30 AM EST, sponsored by Astute Networks, takes you through all of the basics of storage and IO tuning, regardless of the underlying storage technology.  I'll show you how SQL Server handles storage structures, how to identify IO activity on Windows and SQL Server, and best practices for minimizing IO bottlenecks.  Register now for: Storage IO Best Practices for SQL Server and a New Approach to Solving Application Performance Issues.


Write Better SQL Queries

The next webcast on Wednesday, December 19th at 2 PM EST, is with me, Aaron Bertrand  (Twitter Blog) and SQLCruise Impresario & Microsoft MVP Tim Ford  (Twitter | Blog) as we take you through the query tuning process, discussing important DMVs to use during query tuning, as well as demonstrating several essential query tuning techniques that every SQL developer should know.  Not only are we presenting an hour of top quality technical content, we’ll also be giving away some cool prizes, including the grand prize of a paid registration for the upcoming SQLCruise Miami, a $1,395 value!  Register now for: SQL Server Query Tuning Best Practices, Hosted by Kevin Kline and Aaron Bertrand with special guest Tim Ford


I hope to see you at both of these sessions next week!  Best regards,

Sorry, Jimmy! That link should now be fixed.  Thanks for the catch!
