As we approach the end of 2012 – The release year for SQL Server 2012 many of you as we approach 2013 will have version upgrades, hardware refreshed and the real possibility of SQL Server 2012 being run in your production environment. So you might be after some SQL Server Training in SQL Server 2012 to prepare for a version upgrade. As part of my work with Learning Tree I have been lucky enough to be the author of Learning Tree’s 2105 SQL Server DBA skills upgrade course. This course focuses on the new features that would be of interest to the DBA. The SQL Server 2012 DBA skills upgrade class covers
- Techniques that can be used to upgrade or migrate to SQL Server 2012 including techniques to minimise downtime.
- There are some new security features in SQL Server 2012 that could be important to the DBA. User defined server roles and some enhancements to SQL Server auditing to name a few.
- Column Store indexes can be useful in decision support environments, extended events now has its own GUI interface and extended events is definitely a tool the SQL Server DBA will need going forward.
- We finish up with a look at the changes in high availability – AlwaysOn Availability Groups is a feature that is talked about a lot. You learn how to build and AlwaysOn Availability group from the ground up
This 3 day class is available to attend in class and online, in 2013 it will be running at the following locations on the following dates
