SolarWinds to Demonstrate Performance Turning and Optimization for Cloud and On-Premises SQL Server Databases at SQL Server Live!
SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its participation at SQL Server Live!, one of five co-located Live! 360 events, November 12-17, 2017, in Orlando, Florida. At the event, Thomas LaRock and Janis Griffin will present on SQL Server performance tuning and optimization as well as SQL Server administration and maintenance. Additionally, the company will exhibit its latest updates to SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA).

"We all know that databases are the crux of applications, often the most critical component and the hardest to scale, yet most operations teams have very limited visibility into their applications," said Gerardo Dada, vice president, product marketing, SolarWinds. "Effective SQL performance tuning requires understanding where the database is spending time. We look forward to sharing practical advice on how to use wait-time analytics, which we pioneered over a decade ago, to accelerate database performance and optimize resource utilization."
