Yet again I had another opportunity to present Introduction to Policy Based Management yesterday (26 May 2015) at SQL Server User Group meet-up @ Microsoft Office, Dubai, UAE. As mentioned earlier, this event is normally held every last Tuesday of the month. Meet-up was organised by SQL Server User group (www.uaessug.com) and usually consists of two comprehensive and informative sessions that focus on the SQL Server latest technology, best practice, user experience, tips & tricks. This is a good platform to network with SQL Server experts face to face. I was the speaker for yesterday’s meet up along with Mr. Mohammed Owais (CTO at CAZAR).
Following topics were covered in yesterday’s session:
- Backups – not as simple as you think presented by Mr. Mohammed Owais
- Introduction to policy based management was by me
We focused on how you can make your restore strategy instead of backup strategy 🙂 and discussed different types of backup and how can it be handy in case of disaster. Also we discussed, how can you manage your policies across the servers by just click of a button.
I hope yesterday’s session was factual as usual. Our next meetup will be held in June 2015. Hope the coming sessions would witness more participants.
