Featured Presentation

Building a SQL Server Test Lab

Speaker: Ted Krueger, SQL Server MVP LessThanDot

Summary: Have you ever wondered how the community bloggers, authors and speakers set up, test, and beat up SQL Server so quickly, without trashing their laptops or needing servers? This session will show you just how easy it is to do just that – set up a virtual lab locally with the full feature-set of SQL Server and Windows. The session will use VMWare Workstation to show the steps in creating virtual machines running Windows Server 2012, Active Directory, Networking, DNS Services, File Services, Clustering and finally, pulling it all together with a full enriched Availability Group Setup. Through the session, specific areas will be pinpointed that are different in virtual lab configurations for Hyper-V and even Windows Azure Virtual Machines. When completed, the session will deliver the audience a knowledge base that will ensure a full testing area is easily obtained and adapted for building a higher education of SQL Server and Windows Server technologies.

About Ted: Ted Krueger is a SQL Server MVP and has been working in development and database administration for the better part of his career. Specialties range from High Availability and Disaster / Recovery design, implementation, testing methods and administration, down to custom assembly development for SQL Server Reporting Services.
