Simple DR Setup

Andy Wickman, Moser Consulting

Setting up a DR plan can be tedious. Luckily there is a WIZARD for most of it. However, when databases get larger, the wizards don't work as well. Lucky for us, we have POWERSHELL!! This presentation will show you a simple way to set up your DR plan, and if you do a lot of log shipping, say goodbye to having to manage 5 separate SQL Jobs to get one database configured. Included in this presentation is a bit of a plug for the community powershell tools project (

Andy is a Principal Consultant and the SQL Server Technology Leader for Moser Consulting. He LOVES consulting and has helped companies in over 20 industries. He has over 17 years IT experience and over 15 years working with SQL Server. He enjoys learning different SQL Server environments and making them more reliable and improving their performance. He strives to learn more about SQL Server and strives to continue learning.

Andy's family is the most important thing to him. He is a father of 2 awesome boys and husband of the perfect wife for him (probably the only one who can put up with him). He is an avid sports fan. In case you didn't realize, baseball is the best sport (GO ASTROS!!)

Answering the Question, "What Happened?" with Query Store
One of the most highly anticipated new features in the SQL Server 2016 release is Query Store. It's been referred to as the "flight recorder" for SQL Server because it tracks query information, namely plans and runtime statistics. If you've ever had to drop everything to troubleshoot a sudden drop in performance, then you've probably already realized the value of this feature. In this session we'll walk through Query Store with a series of demos designed to help you understand how you can immediately start to use it once you’ve upgraded to SQL Server 2016. We'll review the different options for Query Store, look at examples of what gets collected, dig through the included reports, see how you can force SQL Server to use a specific plan for a query, and find out what happens when it can’t use the specified plan. Get ready to make troubleshooting easier with this feature that’s included in all editions of SQL Server 2016!
