  • Maintain Optimal SQL Server Performance

    Optimal SQL Server performance is vital for today’s businesses. IT professionals charged with keeping Microsoft® SQL Server® running at peak performance need an effective strategy paired with a fully functional solution to maintain a watchful eye over their database environment.

  • Gaining Performance Insights for SQL Server

    Database engines like SQL Server or Azure SQL Database are very heavily instrumented pieces of software. SQL Server tracks a multitude of internal and operating system metrics, down to the level of tracking which each thread is waiting on and aggregating the data. Starting in recent versions of SQL Server, query execution and performance are tracked in stored in a feature called the Query Store.

  • Query Optimization for Plan Explorer

    Execution plans provide a rich source of information that can help us identify ways to improve the performance of important queries. Sometimes, performance will still not be good enough, even after multiple performance tuning techniques are applied. This eBook will help you get the absolute most out of the additional insight a SQL monitoring tool should offer.

  • DevOps for the Database

    This book is about DevOps for the database, and why it’s different, hard, valuable and doable. You can adopt or improve DevOps practices for your databases. We all can. If you’re responsible for all or part of building and running a data-intensive application, and you want to modernize and automate as much as you can for speed, stability and efficiency, then this book is for you.

  • Understanding Fundamentals of Database Performance

    Explore ways to monitor, analyze, and improve database performance by optimizing queries and understanding the foundations for database workloads. No matter your level of expertise, this is an indispensable resource for anyone responsible for SQL query optimization.

  • Identifying Database Performance Problems

    Is your application slow, or is it just you? Slow applications frustrate users and impose very real costs. Most applications rely on databases, and this makes database performance analysis an increasingly important topic of exploration. This tech brief provides an overview of database performance analysis software and why it's important to your business.
