Whitepaper : 6 SQL Server Performance Boosters for Your Hardware

Nearly all successful applications can benefit from the performance-driven strategies outlined in this whitepaper. Many of the categories and items discussed contain easy wins that can boost performance and scalability with far less effort than expected. The techniques outlined here can also serve as a checklist for determining whether it is time to consider throwing more hardware or other resources (such as consultants, third-party solutions, and so on) at a problem.

This whitepaper raises awareness of potential performance-boosting opportunities, provides background information and context for evaluating the effectiveness f these techniques, and outlines some fundamental approaches and performance benefits that stem from implementing these approaches where applicable.
