SharePoint for the DBA
Microsoft SharePoint is a large part of many organizations; landscapes, and becoming larger each day. For the most part, the SharePoint systems have been the purview of the Systems Administrator, and the data professional had little interaction with it. But as the systems become larger and organizations try to make better use of their data resources, the data professionals finds themselves inheriting the SQL Server portion of SharePoint, often with little background or resources.

Come hear Buck Woody, Microsoft’s ‘Real World DBA’ explain what you need to know about SharePoint as a DBA. He’ll cover a quick overview of the product and the duties of the SharePoint administrator, and then focus in more on the database side of the equation. You’ll learn:

  • SharePoint System Architectures, and how to lay out and configure the database servers for them
  • What the SharePoint Databases are, what they do, and where they are stored
  • Best Maintenance Practices for SharePoint Databases
  • Security for SharePoint and SQL Server
  • Disaster Recovery options
  • Monitoring, Tuning and Performance for SharePoint Database systems
