Session Title: Companies have recognised the benefits of going to SQL Server and consequently done so. Now a recurring issue is how to manage mission critical VLDB environments where backups, restores, re-indexing, database consistency checks, etc take so much longer as databases grow upwards of 100GB in size. This session will examine what offerings SQL Server 2005 has to support VLDB environments. The focus will be on: - Database Mirroring - Backup Techniques - Online Restore - Online Indexing - Fast Recovery - Data Partitioning Faster/more hardware is not the solution. It's all about the design of the database architecture and implementation of these new features.
