Quack Chat | Instantly Access Data in Backup Files with SQL Safe Backup

05.16.2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT

SQL Server databases are often repositories for large volumes of business-critical data. As the sizes of databases grow, restore operations become time-consuming. Database professionals need to access data in backup files quickly to reduce recovery time and increase application and business availability. SQL Safe Backup provides several conventional and advanced recovery capabilities. IntelliRestore provides graphical point-in-time recovery. InstantRestore streams data from backup files on-demand while restoring in the background. Virtual Database accesses data in backups instantly without restoring.

With InstantRestore and Virtual Database, the recovery database acts as a fully functional database, supporting all read and write operations and connectivity to all applications. Next-generation Object Level Recovery (OLR) exceeds normal OLR by providing support for all backup file types and recovery of more objects (including those from log backups and foreign key restraints).

Quack Chat | Keep Tempdb Healthy with SQL Diagnostic Manager

05.30.2017 @ 12:00 PM CDT

SQL Server stores a significant amount of data in the tempdb system database. Consequently, tempdb can fill up quickly when disk space is low, or the maximum size for database growth is low. Also, certain workloads may cause excessive space usage or create contention in tempdb, which can affect performance on the entire server. An entire SQL Server instance can become inoperable due to problems with tempdb.

SQL Diagnostic Manager helps to resolve these issues by providing a monitoring solution that features a series of charts, views, alerts, and reports that are unique to tempdb.

Quack Chat | Fix Database Performance Problems with Profiling

06.27.2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT

DBAs often encounter poorly performing SQL, missing or incorrect indexes, and hot database objects in their databases. No matter how hard the DBA may try, something outside the planned norms will eventually occur and then performance will suffer.

Bert Scalzo will show you how IDERA DB Optimizer can run a profile on a database and use it to find and fix performance problems.
