Pro SQL Server Administration [PORTABLE]
Whether you're an administrator or developer using SQL Server, you can't avoid wearing a DBA hat at some point. Developers often have SQL Server on their own workstations and must provide guidance to the administrator about how they'd like the production configured. Oftentimes, they're responsible for creating the database tables and indexes. Administrators or DBAs support the production servers and often inherit the database from the developer.
Pro SQL Server Administration
3. On-premises and cloud database support. If it suits your business goals, you can offload the administration and management of your databases to the cloud with Azure SQL Database or SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines.
1.Plenty of career opportunities. Are you interested in database administration, performance tuning, or T-SQL programming? Would you like to design and implement data cleansing and extract, transform, and load operations? Are you keen on data mining and online analytical processing? Or do you see yourself as a dashboard and interactive reports designer or developer? As we mentioned in our list of pros and cons of Microsoft SQL Server, the platform gives you many possibilities to suit your career aspirations.
When you have browsed to the instance of SQL you wish to use you can then check your connections and any permissions that you maybe missing that you require to be able to use that SQL server as that user.
To help you get started quickly, Databricks creates a small SQL warehouse called Starter Warehouse automatically. You can edit or delete this SQL warehouse. If serverless is enabled, a starter serverless SQL warehouse is created automatically.
Serverless SQL warehouses: The default is 10 minutes, which is recommended for typical use. The minimum is 5 minutes when you use the UI. Note that you can create a serverless SQL warehouse using the SQL warehouses API, in which case you can set the Auto Stop value as low as 1 minute.
For serverless SQL warehouses, the cluster sizes may in some cases use different instance types than the ones listed in the documentation for pro and classic SQL warehouses for an equivalent cluster size. In general, the price/performance ratio of the cluster sizes for serverless SQL warehouses is similar to those for pro and classic SQL warehouses.
For me the gains would be saved disk space (not a current issue ...) and tape space (much more of a benefit) plus the dramatically (I presume) reduced time if we ever had to retrieve from tape and then restore. I gather that restore-from-compressed-backup-file-on-disk is faster (less I/O) which is definitely an advantage, not that we restore often - but when we do its normally DEVs on TEST servers and they'll only sit twiddling their thumbs during the Restore so its actual money-saved. Reduced backup time (i.e. I/O reduction) is not of particular interest to me (or so I think??) as backup [well ... "big backups"] happen out-of-hours and on dedicated backup-only devices.
There used to be a tool (forgotten the name now) which was installed as a Driver. Given the location of SQL backups (and BCP output folders etc.) it intercepted the file generated by SQL and compressed it on-the-fly, and similarly decompressed it when read. It was able to optionally use the ZIP file format, so compressed backup files could be used on other servers by just de-compressing with a ZIP tool. Maybe it's died a death now, superseded by the in-built compression etc., it must have been 2010, maybe earlier, when I knew of it. But that still suffered from needing the same I/O bandwidth as an uncompressed backup
@TaraKizer: speed is not the only factor - at least it wasn't for us at the time of implementation. But as our environment have changed a lot, it is definitely worth exploring(re-evaluating) our setup. Our SAN is currently due for retirement, and only used by fileservers. A new SAN (faster and bigger) is on my top 5 wishlist, in order to also have Exchange and SQL Server data moved to SAN. But we can't avoid backup, due to requirments from our customers.
Its middle of the night here, but I expect plenty of other processes running batch tasks ... but here are the figures. The database is a Transfer Database, running in SIMPLE Recovery Model. batch processes may be populating tables from BCP imports etc. If I have time I'll re-run this during the day, during the weekend, when the server is relatively quiet
I don't disagree with you , but in my case (back then) size mattered VERY much. Time, not so much as we have a big "wiggle room"/enough ressources to manage.If I were to set it up from scratch, with todays environment, I most likely would choose the db server to do the compression.
In general, you would install the 64-bit version of the Vault Server on a 64-bit OS. However if your OS is 64-bit, IIS can be configured to run 32-bit apps so that you can install the 32-bit Vault Server. The 32-bit Vault server is required for VSS Handoff, which imports the latest version of a VSS database.
Microsoft Sharepoint Issues and applications that alter the root web.config Sharepoint and Vault Professional cannot successfully co-exist on the same server machine without special configuration. Any other application that also makes changes to Vault's web.config file will require the same solution. If a website or application adds a web.config file in the same path that Vault occupies, then Vault will try to read that additional web.config file. For that scenario either the additional web.config will need to be removed or Vault will need to be installed to a different location.
The Vault Server installer will also create a SQL login named 'sgvaultuser', and grant it access to the new databases. The SA account is used only during the installation process. After installation, Vault server will use only the sgvaultuser account to access the databases.
The server installation is complete when the status message says "Completing the SourceGear Vault Professional Server Setup Wizard." If you wish to install the Vault Pro Client, check the "Install the Vault Professional Client" checkbox before pressing OK. The client installer will begin.
*Optional: To use the ASP module or assign an administrator password, we need to activate security in the corporate suite software. Click on "File".Click on "Security and administration".Click the "Security group's" button on the left. Click on "Activate Security", it will tell you to login with the user "Administrator" and password "NEW" next time you login. (Note: The password is case sensitive)Click "Close" to exit and it will ask you to restart the program. When you reopen the corporate suite software it will prompt you for a User ID and Password. Enter User ID "Administrator" and password is "NEW" and click OK and it will prompt you for a new password. (Note: The passwords are case sensitive)Set your password and click "OK" and you will be at the 1099 Pro Central of the software.
The Oracle Database SQL Certified Associate Certification demonstrates your knowledge of basic SQL concepts, especially using it to work with the Oracle Database server. The certification will prove your competency in the SQL language, data modeling, and using tables, among other tasks. It requires passing one certification exam. 041b061a72
