Quickly Fix Index and Query Performance Problems with SQL Diagnostic Manager

Everyone wants their SQL queries to run faster, but how can you achieve that? Executing resource-intensive queries requires a significant amount of processor time, memory, and bandwidth, and storage. Queries preventing each other from using these resources can eventually lead to blocking. Common causes of blocking are a lack of proper database indexes, poor execution plans, poor application design, and misconfigured SQL Servers. Accurately identifying problematic indexes and queries is required to resolve potential performance issues in early stages before they cause severe problems for the organization.

Join Doug Walsh to learn how to monitor and diagnose the performance of indexes and queries multiple different ways (such as viewing query signatures, query statements, query history, query waits, query execution plans, worst offenders, and prescriptive workload analysis) in a SQL Server environment with IDERA SQL Diagnostic Manager.

Changing Lanes: Shifting Between Relational and Big Data Platforms
Today’s IT faces a flood of new data streams, from eCommerce, mobile devices, social media, IoT, and other new technologies. To analyze the resulting huge datasets, enterprises need more powerful tools and database management systems.

Database technologies fall into two main categories: SQL and NoSQL, with SQL being the familiar relational databases used every day by IT. In the world of big data, where incoming information is not organized as nice, neat rows and columns, SQL is too slow and unwieldy to provide timely processing. The drawbacks of SQL databases led to the development of NoSQL databases, which are better suited to handle very large datasets.

NoSQL databases can process unstructured data, since there is no predefined schema for the database. It builds its schema on-the-fly. In addition, NoSQL can use parallel processing across dozens or thousands of cloud-based CPUs to extract meaningful results quickly.

In this webcast, you’ll learn:

- Different types of NoSQL databases and criteria for choosing between them
- How dynamic schemes are defined
- Methods for scaling up storage and processing
- The implications of big data for IT resilience and disaster recovery
