Data Channel : Managing SharePoint Databases

I was recently interviewed for the Data Channel about managing SharePoint databases on SQL Server.

In the interview with Nagaraj Venkatesan (SQL Server MVP from Singapore) I cover many of the common questions DBA’s have about SharePoint including:

  • Things that make SharePoint databases unique
  • Capacity Planning
  • Remote Blob Storage (RBS)
  • Backup / Recovery
  • SSRS Integration
  • Patching

You can download a copy of my presentation from #SQLsat614 which covers the basics for DBA’s and is also useful for SharePoint Admins.

Thanks to The SQL Saturday team for giving me the opportunity to present and Nagaraj for the interview.
