Don’t omit the chocolate!
Your organization is not the first to waste tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars on SAN tuning without results. Nor is yours the first to suffer from the tension that arises between sysadmins and DBAs.
We’ve seen this predicament plenty of times, and there is a painless prescription:
- Measure all bottlenecks – The members of Brent Ozar Unlimited have expertise spanning storage, hardware, and databases. While many experts master just one of those, we made it a priority to master all three, which allows us to provide a complete, comprehensive analysis.
- Unify efforts – We coordinate your team towards common goals and we use clear, accurate language that everyone understands.
- Ongoing assessment – The key to successful SAN tuning is to implement the tools for ongoing assessment and analysis
- Eat chocolate – Hopefully this step needs no explanation.
