I am very happy and honored to have been chosen as a presenter at SQL Saturday #206 coming up on April 6, 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin! As I previously mentioned I had a wonderful time there last year and am definitely looking forward to heading back.
This time around I’ll be giving a new presentation on tuning backups and restores. Despite what your SAN administrator might tell you about snapshots, you really do need to run backups on your databases, so it’s to your advantage to make sure your backup and restore processes complete as quickly as possible. I’ll be covering tips and tricks that can help dramatically speed them up so you can save the day that much sooner!
