"In my session, SQL Server Default Configurations: Helping Good People Make Better Choices, I'll detail which configurations to use, when to use them, as well as a few easy ways DBAs can track changing configurations to ensure performance and availability remain high."

  • "The Seven Samurai of SQL Server Data Protection:"
    • What: SQL Server has features to help protect data from three different attack vectors: data at rest, data in use, and data in motion. In this session, LaRock will outline seven features (the seven Samurai) of SQL Server data protection and how to deploy them with confidence.
