Bored with your job? Seeking a new situation? Then you might want to skip this month’s
Sooner or later, it will happen. A backup doesn’t complete. A hard drive crashes. A SAN controller has a hissy fit. All of these scenarios present great
opportunities to explore a new position.
Unless you know how to deal with these unpleasant realities that DBAs
will face. But don’t fret – Jes Borland
will explain how to clean up the mess when things go awry.
Minimize Data Loss with Advanced Restore Methods
– Present by Jes Borland (Concurrency)
Data loss can strike any server at any time. Are you prepared for the inevitable? A good
DBA takes regular backups and practices regular restores; a great DBA has
advanced restore techniques planned and tested. In this session, I will
demonstrate three advanced restore methods that can make you a great DBA -
point-in-time restores, page restores, and piecemeal restores, and will discuss
the appropriate situations when each should be considered. Attend this session
to better protect your business and your job.
Jes Borland is a Senior SQL Server
Engineer at Concurrency and a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. She holds an AAS -
Programmer/Analyst degree, is a Microsoft Certified Professional in SQL Server
2012, and has worked with SQL Server as a developer, report writer, DBA, and
consultant. She is a user group president, Tech on Tap founder, and a
LessThanDot.com blogger. She frequently presents at user groups, SQL Saturdays,
and other community events. She is also an avid runner and chef.
