Session 1Introduction to DevOps in Databases
Strong IT performance is critical to business success, enabling you to quickly respond to the needs of your business and customers and keep up with the competition. A DevOps approach supports this by encouraging your teams to work together to improve the efficiency and quality of software delivery and start adding more value to the business. But the database is commonly a bottleneck. Without the right processes in place, database change management slows things down, adding risk and uncertainty in the way of development. In this session, Amit Bansal, the SQL Guru, will tell you how this bottleneck can be removed by giving you a reliable, scalable and repeatable process for building, deploying and maintaining SQL Server databases, in the same way you do for your application code.
Speaker: Amit R S Bansal (MCM, MVP, Microsoft Regional Director)
Session 2SQL Server Backups – A gaze into internals
One of the first things that a DBA learns is How to take database backups. But very often this remains limited to right click and take backup. We forget the importance of internals and when we don’t know internals we build many misconceptions in our minds as we don’t know what happens in the background. In this session, we will see what exactly happens behind the scenes when you take different kind of backups
