  • Two New Slide Decks. Plus, the Week in Colorado.

    I had the honor of traveling the great state of Colorado last week, speaking at the PASS chapters in Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver.  At all three events, we had a stellar attendance and, at least in Denver, broke all the records in recent memory both in terms of overall attendance and in first-timers. ...

  • Plan for Diagnostics in Cloud Computing From the Git-Go

    “Git-Go” is something we say in the South that means “right at the start”. I’ve seen several applications for on-premise systems that don’t have much in the way of diagnostics - the developers rely on a debugger, the event logs on the server and client workstation, and most of all, the ability to watch the system from end-to-end.

  • Top Tools I Didn’t Know I Needed as a DBA

    Today’s post is an unabashedly subjective plug for a bunch of unrelated tools I have come to rely on and love. I’m not really a “tools guy,” so there are no doubt better and worse tools for these tasks out there. I’m not affiliated with any of the vendors or authors. There’s no scientific method here - I just like these, and use them daily, and ...

    Or, How Mirroring Off-Site Saved my #Bacon My company does most things right. Our management is very supportive, listens and generally funds the technology that makes sense for the best interest of the organization.

  • SCOM, 90 days in, III. Stuff to Add

    This is the third installment of a series on our deployment of System Center at my workplace, emphasis on SQL Server MP.
