Language(s): English.
Product(s): Microsoft SQL Server.
Audience(s): IT Implem_IT Generalist.

At any given time, Contoso's servers provide multiple services to users and applications. Using Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Contoso would like to achieve better performance with its workloads. In this session, we look the Resource Governor, which enables administrators to define limits and assign priorities to individual workloads that are running on a SQL Server instance. We also look at Plan Freezing in SQL Server 2008, which enables greater query performance stability and predictability by providing new functionality to lock down query plans. This enables organizations to promote stable query plans across hardware server replacements, server upgrades, and production deployments.

Presenter: Bryan Von Axelson, Partner Solutions Advisor, Microsoft Corporation

Maybe he lived in Kansas for too long, but Bryan Von Axelson (who now resides in Pennsylvania) compares IT professionals to the Wizard of Oz, working behind the curtain to keep everything running smoothly. In addition to his Microsoft credentials and certifications, Bryan has been a national speaker for the tax software industry and participated in several business and computer radio shows. In 2007, he presented a one-hour Microsoft SQL Server webcast that reached more than 800 people a week for 10 consecutive weeks. Bryan brings infectious enthusiasm, excitement, and most importantly, hands-on knowledge to his TechNet presentations.
