Contoso, like most firms, found that once one database is deployed, others soon follow. Unless planned, these deployments can scale out of control. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 offers a number of features that provide solutions for Contoso to scale out and up, while maintaining control. In this webcast, we show you how to take advantage of the latest hardware, such as 64-bit, hot add memory, and CPU, as well as software features. Learn to speed up query processing with Partitioned Table Parallelism through backup and compression, and to speed up backup times and replication.
