About this talk

You're a DBA responsible for making sure SQL Server databases are online, backed up, corruption-free, and fast. Your databases have gradually grown in size over time, and you're starting to hit new size issues you haven't encountered before. Nightly maintenance windows are getting smaller, you're not able to refresh your development environments quickly enough, and you're not able to run DBCC CHECKDB as often as you'd like. You're starting to wonder - how do people with multiple terabytes of databases handle it? In this session, Brent Ozar will explain how he came to love storage snapshots. He'll discuss how they work, why they're safe to rely on, and how to tell when they're a good fit for your workloads.
