Triangle SQL Server User Group Meeting

Putting the “Squeeze” on Large Tables: Improve Performance and Save Space with Data Compression

Your databases are growing faster than your servers. Large tables consume ever-increasing amounts of storage while putting a drag on query response time. What’s a DBA to do? The data compression feature of SQL Server is one tool DBAs use to save storage space and improve performance. In this presentation you will learn about the types of data compression, how to determine when compression is the right tool, and how to make the magic happen.

BREAKING! - Justin's employer and user group sponsor, SQL Sentry, will be giving away a free license of their SQL Sentry Power Suite which includes Event Manager and Performance Adviser valued at $1,995.00.  You MUST be in person to win this prize.  For more information about SQL Sentry's products visit
