Optimizing SQL Server for SharePoint 2013

A session at SharePoint Saturday DC - June 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

9:00am to 10:15am (EST)

More than 90% of the content accessed via SharePoint is stored in SQL Server and without the correct configuration of SQL Server it can have a detrimental impact on the performance of SharePoint.  Some companies don’t have dedicated database administrators (DBA’s) so the SharePoint administrators are managing the SQL Server instance that is hosting the SharePoint content. Regardless of whether it is a dedicated DBA or the SharePoint administrator there are critical SQL Server configurations that can be made to that will optimize SharePoint.  Often DBA’s are familiar with how to manage SQL Server, but may not be familiar with some nuances that SQL Server has when integrated with SharePoint. In this session we will demonstrate how some default settings SQL Server negatively impact SharePoint and what changes can be made that will improve the performance of SharePoint. These changes include database file settings, memory settings, and even file system settings. We'll also examine how to properly install SQL Server and SharePoint so they work together as efficiently as possible.
