DBA: Protecting SQL Data with Storage Technologies (Peter Niven)
Author: Victor Isakov Date Posted: 3/30/2009 10:04:39 AM
Storage technolgies are playing an ever more important role when implementing SQL Server solutions in the enterprise. SAN and SSD technologies are becoming more pervasive, database capacities are increasing and organisations have longer backup retentions. All these factors impact your disaster recovery and business continuity strategies.

This session will provide an overview of some of the best practices associated with using storage technology to protect SQL and Windows based environments. The presentation will touch on issues such as disaster recovery architectures, self service recovery as well as improving Recovery Time and Recovery Point Objectives (RTO and RPO).

Some general do’s and don’ts as they relate to the use of Storage technologies and SQL will also be discussed as a part of this session, along with an insight into how Microsoft protects its own SQL data assets.

Speaker: Peter Niven. As Regional Storage Solution Specialist (A/NZ) for Microsoft, Peter is responsible for working with Microsoft’s Enterprise sales teams, partners and OEMs to bring effective and innovative data management solutions to bear in Microsoft environments. Peter is Microsoft’s time zone storage business lead and the storage subject matter expert for the Australasian subsidiaries.

Peter has over 25 years experience in the Information Technology arena. Prior to joining Microsoft over 3 years ago he was Network Appliance’s Australasian Data Management and Compliance lead. He joined NetApp after being with Sun Microsystems for nearly 10 years - his last role with Sun was as the Data Management Practice Manager for Australia and New Zealand. Peter has held senior roles in technical, sales and business management disciplines during his career in IT.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control we are no longer able to use the Westpac premises for the Sydney SQL Server Enterprise User Group.

The user group will be moving to the following location:

Sydney Mechanics' School Arts
280 Pitt Street
Sydney NSW 2000

(This is the same location that the evening user group runs at.)

The user group will still continue to run at the same time, from 12:00 till 14:00.

Venue: Sydney Mechanics' School Arts • 280 Pitt Street • Sydney • NSW • 2000 | Duration 12:00 - 14:00 | On: Wednesday, November 4, 2009
