Troubleshooting SQL Server with Extended Events
Server is growing more complex and advanced as a database management system
with every new release and additional technology or functionality. With
the expanding responsibility on supporting and troubleshooting the SQL Server
environment in your organization, it is up to you to find the root cause of
problems and fix them with a proven solution to the given issue. The
hardest aspect of resolving problems is the troubleshooting step, but thankfully
SQL Server gives us the tools to be successful in pinpointing problems.
One of the most powerful tools is Extended Events, and it can be used to
troubleshoot a large array of problems, from errors to performance
bottlenecks. Join Thomas Stringer, a Microsoft SQL Server Premier Field
Engineer, as he dives into the finer points of the technology, and then shows
common troubleshooting scenarios that are often quickly resolved with Extended

Is AlwaysOn the Right High Availability and Disaster Recovery
Plan for me?
You need a high
availability and disaster recovery solution for your mission critical
databases. SQL Server AlwaysOn can help,
but with Windows Clustering, Failover Cluster Instances, and Availability
Groups, the choices get confusing and complicated quickly. This session will
clear up all the confusion by explaining the various components and exposing
all the gotchas. You will learn how to
choose the right level of protection for your environment. You will walk away with the knowledge and
confidence to pick the right solution to give your critical databases a solid
high availability and disaster recovery plan.

Architecture underpins just about everything we do in IT. Without a clear
understanding of how data is structured, there is no reliable way to derive
meaning from it. Data Architecture drives the design and governance of data
systems, and thus should be of interest to any data professional. Data
Architecture provides the blue-prints that we all share, whether we be DBAs,
data integration developers, database developers, data warehousing
professionals, data presentation developers or client-side application
developers persisting data for later retrieval.
Data Architecture Virtual Chapter will focus on data architecture concerns as
they impact users, developers and DBAs on the Microsoft SQL Server platform. We
want to make data architecture accessible to all data practitioners, and drive
the point home that Data Architecture is a set of practices and a body of
knowledge that overlaps almost all database professionals to some degree.
