About This Course: High performance database systems offer timely access to business-critical data. Microsoft SQL Server offers powerful features to maintain these vital systems. In this course, you acquire an in-depth knowledge of SQL Server's core components — the storage engine, lock manager and query optimiser. You gain the skills to implement a high-performance SQL Server database solution.

You Will Learn How To

  • Implement a high-performance SQL Server database solution
  • Leverage SQL Server core components to maintain critical data
  • Ensure query plan reuse
  • Build transactions that maximise concurrency and minimise contention
  • Interpret the data access plans produced by the query optimiser
  • Minimise I/O by designing efficient physical data structures
