Working as a production DBA in charge of administering over 260 SQL Servers, I have come across a number of challenges in delivering and maintaining a diverse collection of applications and identifying the standards necessary for success and mitigating issues that can impact this. This talk is aimed at developers, highlighting the administration considerations of database management and how these can be embedded into the database design and development.
Among topics covered are:
What is Database Management and how does it effect the user application?
What design & development decisions are required to implement?
* Database Recovery Strategy
* Database High Availability
* Database Consolidation & Standardisation
* New Privileged Security management & auditing/activity logging requirements
