Have you ever been to Army-Training? And when was the last time you had a brain-melting experience? Welcome to the most rigorous SQL training you ever had. This 24-hour course is designed to give you the right amount of Internals knowledge and loads of practical tuning & optimization techniques that you can put into production right-away.

SQL Server is an enterprise level RDBMS server with a very powerful database engine capable of handling the toughest of requirements in terms of scalability, availability, extensibility and performance. Many factors impact performance. A solid understanding of SQL Server internals is very critical for anyone who troubleshoots SQL Server performance.

The 24-hour class offers a comprehensive coverage of SQL Server architecture (SQL OS/CPU/Memory/IO), indexing and statistics strategies, transactions and isolation levels, locking and blocking, troubleshooting memory usage, query plans, parameter sniffing, deadlocking, plan cache, wait and latch statistics, Extended Events, DMVs and PerfMon. Throughout the course, you will see dozens of advanced, real-world demos.

This course is not version specific and everything you learn can be applied to SQL Server 2005 through SQL Server 2017.

The course is very demo rich. Hands-On-Labs material will be available to work through the demos and after the course at your own pace.
