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.

Featured Presentation

Designing Amazingly Robust Maintenance Plans with Ola Hallengren’s Free Scripts

Speaker: Troy Gallant, SQL Server DBA

Summary: Today’s SQL Server DBA has a myriad of options when it comes to implementing their backup and maintenance strategies. From internal maintenance plans to all-encompassing third-party solutions, the options are practically endless. One very popular solution revolves around a set of free scripts provided by Swedish data scientist, Ola Hallengren. These well admired scripts are used by corporations large and small worldwide in order to facilitate backups, integrity checks, and index maintenance operations. In this session, not only will we introduce these scripts to those unfamiliar with them, but just as importantly, we’ll take a detailed look into just how these scripts can be extended and customized even further. You’ll be amazed at the flexibility offered by the optional parameters. We’ll also take a gander into the remarkably detailed logging tables in order to inspect the raw data and possibly turn it into a valuable reporting data source.

About Troy: Troy has been a SQL Server professional for over 18 years, filling various roles as analyst, developer, and for the last decade, DBA. As a regular speaker at SQL Saturdays up and down the east coast, he’s taught on a multitude of topics from disaster recovery to performance tuning to professional development. Currently residing in Jacksonville once again, he just got back from two years as Sr. DBA for the EDW of a major international insurance company in New York City.
