As I announced in our Insider newsletter last week, we’ve designed some new Immersion Events to expand the curriculum we offer.

We have a new Immersion Event on SQL Server Hardware! This is a two-day class taught by Glenn Berry, author of the popular SQL Server Hardware textbook.

The first public class will be offered in Bellevue, WA on September 18-19, 2013 – which is co-located with the IE1 class Kimberly and I will be teaching that week.

The class costs US$1,495, with an early-bird price of US$1,295 available until the start of August (all our classes have the same per-day cost, regardless of length).

The agenda for the course is:

  • Module 1: Database Server Hardware Fundamentals
  • Module 2: Storage Subsystem Basics
  • Module 3: Selecting and Sizing Appropriate Hardware for SQL Server
  • Module 4: Selecting and Sizing Storage Subsystems
  • Module 5: Configuring and Benchmarking Hardware and Storage
  • Module 6: Troubleshooting Hardware Related Performance Issues
  • Module 7: Hardware and Virtualization
  • Module 8: Hardware Sizing Case Studies

This is very exciting – we hope to see you there!
