North Texas SQL Server User Group

Clustering 101

Filmed: 11/19/2009

Length: 1:29:30 minutes

SPEAKER: Kaylan Yella. We were fortunate enough to get someone of his skill to teach us about clustering. The basics take a lot of time so we didn't get to any demos during the usergroup session, but Kal was nice enough to film the demos on his own afterwards and they're posted right after this one. So start here and learn the basics, then go to the other vids and learn how to put it all together. Thanks Kal.

Largest SQL Server Installs

Filmed: 3/16/2012

Length: 1:20:51 minutes

Kaylan Yella brings us another excellent session, this time on the largest SQL installs. If you've ever wanted to have some ammo for those people in your office who blame the bad DB performance on some sort of SQL Server threshold instead of their bad coding, then here it is. Kal shows us what the best in the world are doing with SQL Server and trust me, your install is nowhere close to reaching a threshold.
