Enterprise SQL IO optimization best practices
In this session we will try to provide the “full story” about I/O. We will start at the hardware level working our way up the stack through Windows and into the SQL Server storage engine (including Analysis Services). We aim to provide in depth information about all aspects related to high performance storage design for SQL Server and best practices on this naturally complex subject. This session is similar to past SQLPASS sessions however as we continue to learn more about an ever changing storage landscape we share our latest learnings from real world customer deployments.
