Broaden your resume by adding SQL Server maintenance to your skill set! As the first step toward becoming a true Database Administrator, SQL maintenance tasks are straightforward but not often well-explained. You'll learn backup and recovery, performance tuning and monitoring, index maintenance, and all of the other key day-to-day tasks necessary for the proper care and feeding of SQL Server. Applicable to SQL Server 2005 and later, this is the perfect class for the "Microsoft Jack-of-all-Trades" who's been stuck with managing SQL Server.

You will learn:

  • Core SQL Server operational tasks
  • Master everyday maintenance routines
  • How SQL Server works "under the hood"
