Title:  SQL Server 2005: End-to-End Part 2 (Deploy and Operate)  - Schedule as Session 2

Abstract: There are a number of steps involved in the creation of a database application. In this series of sessions we look at the full application lifecycle, from design and build, through deployment and operations to adding BI features to the final application. Throughout the series, you will see best practices for approaching each phase, so if you are looking for the best way to build SQL Server 2005 applications then these three sessions are the place to start. In the second of this series we look at how to take the application that was designed and built in the first session and deploy it into a production environment. We review many of the decisions that you can make with regards to setting the environment up to achieve great reliability, scalability, availability and security. We also look at how SQL Server 2005 helps you manage and operate your application more efficiently once it is deployed, including looking at how the new management and operation tools let you monitor your systems and schedule common tasks, giving you more time to focus on value added tasks.
