Welcome to the Columbus SQL Server Users Group

 

Our local meetings are free and open to all! We meet the second Thursday of every month. Our current meetings are being held at:


IGS

6100 Emerald Parkway

Dublin, OH

Important travel note: Due to all the construction around the I-270/33 interchange in Dublin, your best option for getting to the meeting is to take the Tuttle Crossing exit (15) and take Tuttle Crossing Blvd. west to Emerald Parkway, and turn right. IGS is about a mile on the right.

In an ongoing attempt to make the content presented useful to our members we start each meeting with a short introduction and Q&A session.  Unless noted in the meeting notes the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 - 6:20 - Networking & social time

6:30 - 6:45 - Warm Up Presentation

6:45 - 7:45 - Main Presentation

Upcoming Meeting

Our next meeting will be December, 8th 2016 featuring "Emergency! Are You Ready for Disaster to Strike?" presented by Allen White.



Abstract:

Most of the time pilots are learning to fly, they're actually learning how to recover from emergency conditions. While we as Database Administrators focus on taking backups, how much time do we actually spend practicing recovering with those backups? This session will focus on the kinds of situations that can dramatically affect a data center, and how to use checklists to practice recovery processes to assure business continuity.

About the speaker:

Allen is the Business Development Manager for SentryOne. He's been both a developer and an administrator so understands both perspectives towards database technology, and loves sharing his experiences and helping people learn how to use SQL Server.  Allen has spent over 40 years in IT and has been using SQL Server since 1992 and is certified as a MCITP in SQL Server and a former MCT.  Allen has been awarded Microsoft’s MVP Award for the last ten years.
