On-Demand Webinar:
SQL Server Performance Architecture
for Beginners

Databases store data the same way we would store groceries in our refrigerator. We organize them so that they are easy to find; the architecture for SQL performance operates in a similar way. If you’re familiar with SQL basic and want to get a jump start on undemanding the performance nuts and bolts then this on-demand webinar is perfect for you.

Watch Rick Morelan and Scott Walz as they cover the basic performance concepts and tips, including which ones always work and which ones always fail. These concepts apply to all of today’s enterprise databases. You will gain insight on basic performance tuning tips and tricks, common index types and when to use them and habit-based mistakes and how to avoid them.

Watch the on-demand webinar to learn about:

  • Clustered and non-clustered indexes
  • Basic storage concepts and terms of the database
  • How to read execution plans
