This book will provide detailed guidance on management, administration, and monitoring of SQL Server 2005. These areas remain a challenge to IT professionals who have SQL Server already deployed. Since this book assumes you will have SQL Server already installed, it will go far beyond the basic installation and setup information found in hundreds of other resources. Instead, it will focus on day-to-day administration, best practices, and industry case scenarios. In addition, the book will include the least understood yet most important details for managing, administering, and proactively monitoring SQL Server 2005. The continued popularity of Stanek's Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant, even though it is written on beta and only contains what Microsoft wants you to know, shows that there is a need for a reliable, independent, up to date quick reference. The independent yet reliable information, the years of practical experience, the focus on administration, and the easy-to-find format will make this a DBA's first choice for information.Mistry, Ross is the author of 'SQL Server 2005 Management and Administration ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780672329562 and ISBN 0672329565.
