I will be presenting my session “Backups for non-DBAs….the Why, not the How” at SQL Saturday Houston on June 17, 11am.
This is mostly targeted at non-DBAs such as owners, managers, CxOs, developers and sysadmins…but all are more than welcome.
We will be discussing various scenarios to consider as part of an overall DR/Business Continuity plan, as well as sharing a few horror stories from the field…both ancient and current.
The session abstract:
Join me and get some new perspective on what your DBA is doing, and why!
Targeted at the non-DBA such as BI/DW folks, Application Developers, Managers, and System Admins, this session will go over the reasons we back up our databases, our systems, etc. Considerations such as Single points of failure, High Availability/Disaster recovery, Business Continuity and others will be discussed in this interactive conversation. It will be conversation heavy, with supporting slides to download, and one Database backup demo at the end if time permits.
Everyone involved in a technical role needs to at least know that the things they have created will be recoverable in the event of a disaster, or even just an “oops” moment. The CIO/CTO should know how long critical systems will be down when bad things happen. Backups are everyone’s responsibility…whether asking the right questions or implementing the process.
I look forward to seeing you there!
