Designing Database Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server - 20465 Course Outline
This course describes how to design and monitor high performance, highly available data solutions with SQL Server 2012. This course focuses on creating plans and designs for database structure, storage, objects, and servers. Students will have the opportunity to practices hands-on skills and design tasks in a virtual lab environment and will learn about topics such as data compression, high availability, data migration, security, and scalability.
This course maps to skills and knowledge measured by Microsoft Exam 70-465, and in conjunction with on-the-job experience, can help prepare your for the exam.
This course is intended for individuals who design database solutions for organizations and have experience with database development and administering SQL Server databases. These individuals design databases as their primary area of responsibility. They are responsible to plan and design database structure, storage, objects, and servers. They also create the plan for the environment in which the database solution runs.
At course completion
In addition to their professional experience, students who attend this training should already have the following technical knowledge:
Experience with Transact-SQL
Familiarity with SQL Server 2012 components and tools
Familiarity with objects in a SQL Server database
Familiarity with enterprise Windows network and security architecture
This course is designed for customers who are interested in learning SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014. It covers the new features in SQL Server 2014, but also the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
Design an appropriate database server infrastructure for a given business application scenario
Design a logical schema for a database based on application requirements
Design the physical implementation of a database for a given set of requirements
Evaluate options for including binary large object data in a database design
Plan and manage indexes to optimize performance
Describe the key considerations for designing security for SQL Server instances and databases
Plan policy-based management to manage server instances, databases, and other SQL Server 2012 objects more efficiently
Plan SQL Server health monitoring
Implement SQL Server health monitoring by using SQL Server Utility
Identify and implement the appropriate backup strategy for a given scenario
Plan and manage multi-server maintenance and automation
Understand the benefits of using PowerShell to manage SQL Server 2012
Design an optimal replication strategy from a given set of business and technical requirements
Plan and implement a high availability solution
