Cursus Designing, Optimizing, and Maintaining a Database Administrative Solution for Microsoft SQL Server 2008

This five-day course provides the knowledge and skills to design, optimize, and maintain a database administrative solution for Microsoft SQL Server 2008.


Before attending this course, students must:

  • Understand the tradeoffs among the different redundant storage types. For example, what RAID levels mean, and how they differ from Storage Area Networks (SAN).
  • Understand how replication works and how replication is implemented.
  • Be familiar with reading user requirements and business-need documents. For example, development project vision/mission statements or business analysis reports.
  • Have some knowledge of how queries execute. Must be able to read a query execution plan and understand what is happening.
  • Have basic knowledge of the dependencies between system components.
  • Be able to design a database to third normal form (3NF) and know the tradeoffs when backing out of the fully normalized design (denormalization) and designing for performance and business requirements in addition to being familiar with design models, such as Star and Snowflake schemas.
  • Have monitoring and troubleshooting skills.
  • Have knowledge of the operating system and platform. That is, how the operating system integrates with the database, what the platform or operating system can do, and how the interaction between the operating system and the database works. For example, how integrated authentication interacts with Active Directory directory service.
  • Have knowledge of application architecture. That is, how applications can be designed in three layers, what applications can do, interaction between applications and the database, interaction between the database and the platform or operating system.
  • Must already know how to use: a data modeling tool & Microsoft Office Visio (to create infrastructure diagrams)
  • Be familiar with SQL Server 2005 features, tools, and technologies.
  • Have a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 credential or equivalent experience.


The primary audience of this course is IT professionals who design and maintain SQL Server databases. The audience can also comprise technical architects and consultants who design and implement SQL Server solutions. Students taking this course are expected to have three or more years of experience working on databases for two or more of the following phases in the product lifecycle - design, development, deployment, optimization, maintenance, or support.



Module 1: Designing an Administrative Solution for SQL Server 2008

  • Implementing an Administrative Solution in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)

Module 2: Deploying SQL Server 2008
This module describes the considerations for implementing a new version of SQL Server 2008. This module also describes the steps for upgrading an existing installation to SQL Server 2008.


  • System Requirements for SQL Server 2008
  • Upgrading and Migrating to SQL Server 2008
  • Configuring Instances in SQL Server 2008

Module 3: Designing the Physical Structure of SQL Server 2008
This module describes file placement considerations for different functionalities in SQL Server 2008, which helps to improve performance and availability. This module covers the use of partitioning to improve database performance. This module also describes the importance of full-text indexing.


  • Introduction to the Physical Structure of a Database
  • Planning for Partitioning
  • Planning for Full-Text Indexing

Module 4: Designing a Strategy for Maintaining a Database in SQL Server 2008
This module describes the importance of keeping the database up-to-date and the database performing in optimal state. This includes keeping statistics updated and ensuring that a proper index is deployed and implemented. This module also covers the use of database compression to save the disk consumption and to improve the overall performance of a database.


  • Designing a Strategy for Maintaining Statistics for a Database
  • Designing a Strategy for Maintaining Indexes
  • Designing a Strategy for Database Compression

Module 5: Designing Solutions for Managing SQL Server 2008
This module describes the new approach of managing SQL Servers that has been introduced in SQL Server 2008. It also describes the importance of having a centralized administrative model in your organization by implementing policy-based management. This module also describes how to prevent accidental database changes by using DDL triggers and how to use Change Data Capture (CDC) to monitor data changes in the database for compliance reasons.


  • Designing a Policy-Based Management Strategy
  • Controlling Resource Usage by using Resource Governor
  • Auditing Database Changes

Module 6: Automating the Database Management Strategy for SQL Server 2008
This module describes the use of SQL Server Agent and scripts, such as VBScripts and SQL PowerShell, to automate some routine jobs which administrators perform often. This module also covers the use of event notification that helps you to monitor your database for specific events and notify the administrator when the event occurs.


  • Managing SQL Server Agent
  • Automating Administrative Tasks in SQL Server
  • Monitoring Events in SQL Server

Module 7: Designing a Strategy for Securing SQL Server 2008
This module presents information related to database access control and how SQL Server manages keys and certificates. This module also covers the use of database encryptions to prevent application data from being accessed by unauthorized users, including administrators.


  • Securing SQL Server 2008 Instances
  • Planning Database Security
  • Managing Certificate and Keys in SQL Server 2008
  • Implementing Database Encryption

Module 8: Designing a Strategy for Monitoring SQL Server 2008
This module describes the information on monitoring a SQL Server 2008 server to ensure that it is performing properly and is in a healthy state. This module also presents information on how to determine if there are any potential problems on the server.


  • Overview of Monitoring SQL Server 2008
  • Monitoring SQL Server Instances
  • Monitoring SQL Server Databases
  • Monitoring Multiple SQL Servers by Using Data Collection

Module 9: Designing a Strategy for Content Distribution in SQL Server 2008
This module describes the different methods of distributing data to multiple servers. This module describes how to use remote query with linked server and the considerations of using distributed transactions on query span across multiple servers. This module also discusses the use of SSIS to perform data transportation between servers and it covers the method for troubleshooting SSIS packages.


  • Distributing Data in SQL Server 2008
  • Working with Distributed Queries
  • Managing Distributed Content by Using Distributed Transactions
  • Managing SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Packages
  • Setting Up Scalable Shared Databases

Module 10: Designing a Strategy for Replication in SQL Server 2008
This module provides more in-depth discussions on using replication. This module also talks about using replication, specifically snapshot and transactional replication, which is one-way replication, to replicate data to other servers. Finally, this module describes the way to set up merge and peer-to-peer replication, which should be used for multi-update origin scenarios.


  • Designing a Database Replication Strategy
  • Implementing Content Distribution by using Replication
  • Configuring a High-Availability Solution by Using Replication

Module 11: Designing a High-Availability Solution for SQL Server 2008
