August Meeting – Monday 17th August 2015

Our User Group meeting for this month will be on our new day MONDAY 17th August at new starting time of 6pm (although many members gather informally from 5.30pm).  The venue remains unchanged in the basement of Jurys Inn Hotel in Exeter.

This month we have Rob Sewell ( B | T ) giving us two sessions
A Look at Azure SQL VM Automated Backup and Azure Automated Patching
If you are building SQL VMs in Azure you can use Azure SQL VM Automated Backup and Azure Automated Patching to reduce the amount of configurations you need to do to ensure that your user databases are regularly backed up and your servers are kept up to date with the latest updates. In this session you will learn how easy it is to set these up, the restrictions that are in place and most importantly how you can restore from those backups using both the GUI and PowerShell

and then . . . .

Continuous Learning
A look at the importance of continuing to learn every day, how and where you can achieve this and suggestions that you can bring into the workplace.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday!

April Meeting

Our April 2015 meeting will be held on 23rd April, the night before SQL Saturday Exeter‘s Training Day, and we hope you will join us. This month’s session has only one technical session, as after the refreshments we will be bag packing and socialising prior to the SQL Saturday conference. If you can spare the time to help it will be much appreciated.

We hope that John Q Martin will be able to present his session “AlwaysOn Administration Tasks”. His session will cover all the different admin tasks and things you need to do to have a healthy AlwaysOn configuration for FCI & AG.

John’s work schedule means he can’t guarantee that he will be able to be on time, so if not then our own Jonathan Allen will present instead.

We hope to see you at our meeting from 17:30.
