We present and attend a lot of industry conferences. Here’s where to find us next:
May 16-18, 2017 – Wroclaw, Poland
I’m coming to Poland! I’m teaching my one-day pre-con:
Performance Tuning When You Can’t Fix the Queries – Your users are frustrated because the app is too slow, but you can’t change the queries. Maybe it’s a third party app, or maybe you’re using generated code, or maybe you’re just not allowed to change it. Take heart – there’s still hope. Brent Ozar does this every week, and he’ll share his proven methodologies to find the bottleneck with wait types, figure out if you can throw hardware at it, or if you’ll need to change SQL Server settings.

May 21-25 – Orlando, Florida
I’m heading back to Disney World for another week with Paul & Kim. Here’s the conference lineup including my sessions, and I’ll be teaching a one-day post-con on Thursday, May 25:
Advanced SQL Server High Availability – You’re not scared of clusters, log shipping, and database mirroring. You’ve even played around with AlwaysOn Availability Groups. You’re a DBA who wants to take it to the next level: you want to see what happens when you mix AlwaysOn Availability Groups and clustering with off-premise options like multiple data centers, Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure, and SAN replication. You’re tired of the marketing hype, and you just want honest real-world answers about how these technologies work for your existing databases.
Brent Ozar will share real-world experience and his simple decision charts for:
- AlwaysOn Availability Groups
- Amazon EC2 and RDS
- Microsoft Azure VM roles and Azure SQL Database
- VMware and Hyper-V storage replication
And other advanced scenarios not usually covered in typical HA/DR classes. Register now.
