Hi. I’m Brent Ozar.
I got my start with Microsoft SQL Server in the late 1990s – first as a developer and systems administrator, then as a full time database administrator. I’ve managed performance and reliability for truly tough servers: tens of terabytes per server, thousands of databases per server, tens of thousands of queries per second.
I’m one of the rare Microsoft Certified Masters, I coauthored SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting, and I’ve headlined conferences around the world including the PASS Summit, Microsoft TechEd, SQLbits, SQL Intersections, and Microsoft Ignite. My clients have included Stack Overflow, Google, and other less-recognizable names that had just as challenging problems to solve.
I make SQL Server faster and more reliable.
