Hi. I’m Brent Ozar.
I make Microsoft SQL Server go faster. I got my start in the late 1990s – first as a developer and systems administrator, then as a full time DBA. I’ve managed performance and reliability for truly tough servers: tens of terabytes, thousands of databases, thousands of queries per second.
I’m one of the rare Microsoft Certified Masters, and I’ve taught at conferences around the world including the PASS Summit, SQLbits, SQL Intersections, and Microsoft Ignite. My clients have included Stack Overflow, Google, and other companies whose SQL Servers you rely on every day.
