HOUSTON, TX – April 2-3, 2015 – Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, today announced it is sponsoring the SSWUG Virtual Conference. The virtual conference is one of the largest free conferences for SQL professionals, supports community learning and offers database administrator (DBA) and database developers an opportunity to continue education without the overhead costs that typically come with conference attendance. The 2015 conference includes 20 invitation-only speakers and will cover more than 30 in-depth tracts, including two presentations by Vicky Harp, product manager at Idera.

“SSWUG is a great opportunity for DBAs and database developers to continue learning, discover new technologies and tools, and connect with other practitioners,” said Randy Jacops, CEO of Idera. “We believe in their mission to help IT professionals succeed by bringing relevant news and information to them directly, and we couldn’t be more proud of Vicky Harp for her inclusion in this invitation-only speaker line-up.”

The first session presented by Harp will take place at 4 p.m. on April 2nd and is titled Care and Feeding of Your System Databases, focusing on master, model, msdb, and tempdb: what they are and how maintenance and their configuration impact performance. Her second session titled Understanding and Monitoring Tempdb is scheduled for 8 a.m. on April 3rd and provides a deep dive into this shared resource and gives participants an understanding of common performance issues, contention, and problem detection.

“It was an honor to be invited to speak at the SSWUG Virtual Conference and it is a privilege to be in the company of the other speakers,” said Vicky Harp, product manager at Idera. “I’m incredibly excited to share with the audience the tips and tricks I’ve come across for tempdb and other shared resources through the years of designing products to serve the SQL Server DBA.”
