Management Data Warehouse & Utility Control Point

Friday, June 3, 2011 1pm ET/10am PT.

Register now!

Direct from Wayne Snyder, MVP

SQL Server 2008 introduced the Management Data Warehouse (MDW). MDW will automatically collect information about Query stats and index usage, resource locking and blocking and disk usage. We can use this information to improve performance troubleshooting.

SQL Server 2008 R2 added the SQL Server Utility and Utility Control Point (UCP). UCP automates some of the MDW functionality and provides additional reporting for Data Tier Applications, Database Files, storage volumes, and CPT utilization.

Register for the webinar to learn more about UCP.

As a part of the show, we thought it would be fun to hold a contest where you could literally Unlock Your Potential. Prior to the show, we sent out a bunch of keys to educators across the nation and we asked them to bring the key with them to ISTE. The participants were then given the opportunity to see if their key unlocked the LearnKey prize box for a chance to win a Kindle, i-Pod shuffles, or flash drives!
