Stuart Moore speaking on Automated SQL Server restores and testing with PowerShell

Abstract: Just because SQL Server has made a backup for you, it doesn't mean it's restoreable. And how long is it going to take to restore it when the boss is breathing down your neck? Using PowerShell we can routinely restore databases to check both of these things, and also allow us to run in depth integrity checks that may be impractical on live production databases.

(Please note that the Scott Klein session on Big Data is being rescheduled as Scott is a tad busy with the SQL Server 2016 launch)
