Microsoft Course 10775 Administering Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Databases – in Cleveland, Ohio
Located in Beachwood off I-271, DeVore serves the Northeast Ohio Area, including Akron – Canton, Warren – Youngstown and Erie, Pa.
This course is the foundation for administering one or more Microsoft-SQL Server Databases, and the attendent responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with the Administrator role: backing up the
databases, insuring that the backups are good, securing the databases, applying ‘Best Practices” to achieve optimal performance, planning for recovery from worst-case scenarios, and advising others regarding data and database issues.
This course is ideally suited for individuals who have been working with some aspect of data, or have been administering the network, and are moving to a role of also administering databases.
It is a great course for individuals currently administering earlier versions of SQL server who also have other responsibilities in their workplace. Databases are NOT a good choice for Trial-and-Error learning. The cost of training is inconsequential compared to the potential cost of errors.
This course will address both the software and hardware considerations necessary.
The Microsoft T-SQL course is helpful, but not a prerequiste to the Administration class. You may take either class first.
