A place for Windows administrators and developers to gather and learn about Linux
Essential Linux for the SQL Server DBA by Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman
Posted On February 13, 2018
It takes a lot to learn the A to Z of Linux, mastering how to navigate, manage and manipulate this new Operating System. Clear best practices surrounding file systems, security and database management, covering the basics to ensure the OS is out of the way so the DBA can focus on the main part of their job- managing the database! Join Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, as she shares two decades of experience managing databases on Unix servers to help SQL Server DBAs learn to navigate and manage the new SQL Server on Linux frontier.
Top take-aways from this session are:
Learn how to navigate and manage a Linux server like a champ.
Have the tools necessary to build upon, even after you leave the session.
Linux can be dangerous, as any OS. You’ll learn what NOT to do as a DBA who’s goal is to protect the data, all of the data and nothing but the database.
Slides will serve as excellent reference material.
