Course Outline in PDF


This course describes how to design and monitor high performance, highly available data solutions with SQL Server 2012. This course focuses on creating plans and designs for database structure, storage, objects, and servers. Students will have the opportunity to practices hands-on skills and design tasks in a virtual lab environment and will learn about topics such as data compression, high availability, data migration, security, and scalability.

This course maps to skills and knowledge measured by Microsoft Exam 70-465, and in conjunction with on-the-job experience, can help prepare your for the exam.

Who Should Attend:

This course is intended for individuals who design database solutions for organizations and have experience with database development and administering SQL Server databases. These individuals design databases as their primary area of responsibility. They are responsible to plan and design database structure, storage, objects, and servers. They also create the plan for the environment in which the database solution runs
At Course Completion:
