This 5 day course is intended for students who need to learn the skills necessary to maintain a Microsoft SQL Server 2014 system infrastructure. Being comprehensive and hands-on, it is aimed at quickly getting students familiar with the Microsoft SQL Server 2014 administration concepts, tools and utilities. Attendees will gain insight into the infrastructure and architecture of SQL Server, enabling individuals to fully understand the product with which they are dealing. Configuration of server instances and databases is given extensive treatment, as is the pivotal role of database transaction logs. Index creation and maintenance is also given in-depth analysis to facilitate better understanding of related performance issues arising from their use, and how to rectify problems that can often occur. Thorough coverage is given to managing SQL Server security, including both at the server and database level. The focus then shifts to examining how best to move and protect data, such as when importing or exporting it between heterogeneous data sources, backing it up to external media, and restoring data from a backup. Many tasks involved in the day to day administration of a SQL Server instance can be performed automatically, making an administrators life potentially simpler, and such is the subject matter in the module dealing with SQL Server Automation. Coverage of SQL Server high availability options is also provided, enabling students to better identify what choices are available and best suited to given scenarios. Finally, comprehensive treatment is given to the monitoring and troubleshooting of SQL Server performance and related issues.
This course is fully customisable and can be tailored to include only the material required.
