The goal of the DBA Virtual Group is to provide a PASS community for the DBA. It provides a forum for open discussion and education on issues that face SQL Server database administrators.

Managing Lots of Instances

Wed, Aug 23 2017 12:00 Eastern Daylight Time

RSVP: None

Managing Lots of Instances

When managing a single instance it is easy to keep track of the configuration of that instance, but what about when you have more than ten instances to manage? How do you know they are setup correctly? How do you maintain the databases on each instance? How do you take care of patching? How do you know when your server is on fire? In this talk we will answer these questions and more as we discuss technologies and approaches you can use to make sure your environment is performing at its best.
