I’m very proud to announce that kCura selected me to speak again this year at Relativity Fest, the annual gathering of e-discovery professionals. I’ve been doing a lot of Relativity work (here’s a recap of my blog posts about it) and I really like working with the company and the product. Heck, I even attended end-user training recently because I wanted to be able to better speak the language of the lawyers.
Here’s my sessions this year:
Building a Reliable SQL Server for Relativity
Your users want Relativity to be up at all times. What’s the first step? How much work is involved? What will it all cost? Microsoft Certified Master Brent Ozar will give you a simple worksheet to get management and the IT team on the same page, and then show you how to turn those specs into a rough project plan and budget. You’ll learn how to choose between virtual and physical servers, explain different high-availability methods, and understand why clustering is such a no-brainer choice.
Why is My SQL Server Slow?
You’re a DBA who’s struggled with Perfmon metrics and Profiler. You’re facing a sea of confusing numbers, and you don’t know where to focus first. Microsoft Certified Master Brent Ozar will give you a friendly introduction to wait statistics—the dramatically easier way to find your SQL Server’s bottleneck. He’ll show you how to collect the right data with free scripts, then interpret confusing results like CXPACKET and PAGELATCH_EX.
Sound good? Join me!
I’ll also be hanging out during the entire Fest, and it’s your chance to pick my brain at length for free. But even if you don’t like me (and who could blame you), if you work with Relativity, you should attend Fest. It’s a great way to meet hundreds of people who share your job and your challenges. Head on over and register for Fest – they usually do sell out early.
