This 3/400-level, 3-day, SQL Server training class is designed to help you justify, plan and implement a successful upgrade and migration from a legacy version of SQL Server (SQL Server 2005 or newer), to a currently supported version of SQL Server (SQL Server 2012 or newer).
This class will give you a wealth of practical techniques that you can use as soon as you return to work. We will cover license, feature, and performance differences between SQL Server 2016/2017 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2016/2017 Enterprise Edition. We give you extremely useful information about new features in SQL Server 2012-2017 to help you make the technical and business case for an upgrade.
We will have detailed information about how to select and configure your hardware and storage to maximize your performance and minimize your SQL Server license costs, whether it is deployed bare-metal on-premises, virtualized on-premises, or in a Windows Azure VM (IaaS).
We will cover how to properly install and configure SQL Server 2016/2017 for the best performance and reliability. We will also demonstrate how to use the Microsoft Data Migration Assistant and the Microsoft Database Experimentation Assistant to help discover issues that could prevent a successful upgrade and migration.
There will also be extensive coverage of how to plan and implement a successful production migration with minimal downtime and no data loss.
All these topics will be addressed on multiple fronts: with planning and implementation considerations and techniques, common problems, troubleshooting, and multiple demonstrations.
Our aim is that you can apply what we teach you to any upgrade and migration situation and justify your solution to your peers, management, or clients (yes, we welcome SQL Server consultants in our classes).
This course is useful and relevant regardless of whether you have attended any other SQLskills IE courses or not.
This course will cover SQL Server 2005 through SQL Server 2017, and is essential for all SQL Server DBAs, and architects. We will answer all your questions, to whatever depth you want to go.
