The bigger your databases get, the longer backups take. That doesn't really seem like a huge problem — until disaster strikes and you need to restore your databases as fast as possible.

Join Brent Ozar, a Microsoft Certified Master of SQL Server, along with Quest’s world-renowned SQL Server gurus Kevin Kline and Iain Kick, as they explore ways to make these critically important maintenance tasks run faster.

You'll discover:

  • Why Instant File Initialization is so important for restores
  • How to use DMVs to check restore progress
  • How to find the bottleneck while you're backing up or restoring data
