Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Managing Databases and Automating Tasks

Database maintenance is an ongoing task for SQL Server 2012 administrators. This requires the integrity of the database to be checked, the database size to be kept to a minimum by ensuring the files are the correct sizes, and maintenance tasks to be run regularly. SQL Server 2012 Transact-SQL provides DBCC, which is a command that provides statements to maintain the database and database files. An administrator can also create jobs using SQL Server Agent to automate administrative tasks in the SQL Server Database Engine and throughout the enterprise by having the jobs run on multiple SQL Server servers throughout the enterprise using a master server. SQL Server 2012 provides the Database Mail feature which allows e-mails to be sent from SQL Server to users through applications. These e-mails can be anything from alerts to query results and files from any network resource using SMTP. This course demonstrates how to confirm the integrity of a database and manage the size of the database files. It also demonstrates how to configure Database Mail and SQL Server Agent jobs for a single server and for multiple servers.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Backing Up and Restoring Databases

Enterprises use databases to store their most critical data. To protect and ensure the data's availability, database administrators need to establish a solid backup and restoration plan. Such plans are used to protect data in the event of a disaster by allowing complete sets of duplicate data to be restored in a timely fashion. There are multiple types of backups that can be taken to ensure data can be recovered, including to the point of failure or a point-in-time recovery. This course demonstrates how to perform backup and recovery operations.This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam 70-462: Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Security Management

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 provides enhanced security features to ensure that each instance is secure. Using SQL Server 2012 security features, administrators can guarantee that access to a SQL Server instance is granted only to specified users, using either Windows Authentication or Mixed Mode Authentication by creating logins and then mapping the logins to the databases within the instance. Administrators also have the ability to encrypt a SQL Server instance using transparent data encryption (TDE) and to encrypt the data within a database using encryption certificates and asymmetric and symmetric keys. SQL Server 2012 also provides an auditing feature to audit the instance using server-level and database-level events, which can then be reviewed in log files. Policy-based management is another feature which provides administrators the means to specify policies throughout the SQL Server instance that objects need to adhere too to keep the database security and running efficiently. This course demonstrates how to create SQL Server logins, database users, schemas, roles, and how to grant permissions. It also addresses how to use encryption to protect a database and database data, as well as how to use the SQL Server Auditing feature and Policy-Based Management. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam 70-462: Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Managing Database Data

SQL Server 2012 provides various features and utilities to manage data stored in the databases within a SQL Server instance. This includes support for storing large unstructured data, such as files and documents within or outside the database. The ability to store large data is supported through the FILESTREAM database feature. This enables large unstructured data to be store outside the database on the file system by providing integration between the file system and SQL Server. FileTables is another database feature that allows large data to be store within tables, but accessed from the file system. SQL Server also provides data compression at the row and page level to compress data that is stored within a database which can help reduce its size. Bulk exporting and importing of data is another feature supported by SQL Server 2012 to allow data to be moved from outside sources into SQL Server or out of SQL Server to outside source or other SQL Server databases. This course provides an overview of the FILESTREAM and FileTable features, including how to enable and use them within a SQL Server 2012 database. It also covers data compression and how to use the bcp utility, BULK INSERT, and OPENROWSET(BULK) function to import and export data. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam 70-462: Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Managing Indexes, Full-Text Search and Partitions

SQL Server 2012 provides features to allow administrators to ensure that data is accessed efficiently, this includes the use of indexes, table and index partitions, and full-text search. Indexes in SQL Server 2012 database allow data to be accessed quickly using keys that are stored in a B-tree structure. Indexes need to be created and managed to ensure for the best database performance. SQL Server 2008 provides table and index partitioning to allow data to be stored across multiple filegroups within a database. This makes tables and indexes that contain large amounts of data more manageable. Partitions in the database may need to be split to allow for more data to be stored, or data from one partition may need to be moved to another partition. SQL Server's full-text search component can be implemented to ensure that specific data is returned based on search words and phrases. This course demonstrations how to create and manage indexes, table and index partitions, and how to configure and use the full-text search component in SQL Server 2012. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam 70-462: Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases. This exam is one of the requirements for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associated (MCSA): SQL Server 2012 certification.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Database Monitoring and Performance Tuning

To keep SQL Server 2012 databases running as efficiently as possible, there are a variety of performance tuning and monitoring tools. The SQL Server Profiler enables you to use trace files and logs to analyze a database's performance. You can also use the Windows System Monitor to monitor SQL Server 2012 using counters, which monitor specific aspects of the server for performance issues. SQL Server 2012 includes the Activity Monitor, which provides an overview of the system's performance in real-time. SQL Server 2012 provides a the Resource Governor, which allocates specific resources to specific sessions, and a data collector, which collects specific data and stores it in a management data warehouse. Extended Events can be used to monitor performance information based on events that occur in the instance using sessions. In SQL Server 2012, concurrency issues may arise that require you to intervene by detecting the locking issue and possibly terminating a process that could be blocking a session from performing its task. Concurrency issues can arise when multiple users are trying to access the same data in a database. This course demonstrates how to use SQL Server Profiler, System Monitor, Activity Monitor, Extended Events, and the data collector to monitor and tune the performance of the database. It also addresses how to detect and resolve locks. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam 70-462: Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases.
