Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

Welcome to the Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group

The Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group (JSSUG) was founded by Brian Knight in January 2003, creating a community for database developers and administrators in the Jacksonville area. The goal of JSSUG is to share knowledge, best practices, and network. Today, it is a community focusing on development, administration, and business intelligence. Free meetings are open to the public every month. Meetings include presentations, technology announcements, local job opportunities, and quick brainstorming/guidance for users experiencing difficulty. An after event for additional networking, shop talk, and users desiring more detailed guidance for specific challenges is available following the meeting.

Welcome

JSSUG Monthly Meeting - February 20, 2013

Our monthly meetings as usual the third Wednesday of every month but at our new meeting location.

Featured Presentation:

Building a SQL Server for Optimal Performance

Gareth Swanepoel, Premier Field Engineer Microsoft

An "accidental DBA" is a SQL Server administrator who has been thrust into the task without having the complete experience or know how required to keep SQL running at peak performance. This is not their fault and is purely due to the fact that they have not been exposed to it before. If you are a DBA and find yourself wondering how hardware changes affect performance or have questions relating to the performance implications of partitioning or compression, then this session is for you. In this session, I will be exploring topics such as Memory configuration, CPU options, IO considerations, partitioning, compression and database file placement.

About Gareth:
Gareth Swanepoel is a sysadmin-turned-SQL Server DBA. He has been working in the IT industry doing support and administration for over 25 years. He enjoys solving the complex problems that customers encounter when performance tuning SQL Server or when deploying SQL Server in large data warehouse environments. He is originally from South Africa and is currently a Dedicated Support Engineer (PFE) with Microsoft. He is a passionate member of the SQL Server community and is an accomplished author and speaker having presented at various user groups, SQL Saturdays, the PASS Summit and other technical conferences.
