MICROSOFT TECHNICAL

MOC 10775A - Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2013 Databases

OVERVIEW

This five-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to maintain a Microsoft SQL Server 2013 database. The course focuses on teaching individuals how to use SQL Server 2013 product features and tools related to maintaining a database. Also this course helps you prepare for the Exam 70-462 

All the labs for this course can be performed using the provided virtual machines. However, if you have a Microsoft Windows Azure account and the classroom virtual machines connect to the internet you may be able to connect to your Azure server and database from the classroom. Many of the labs in this course are enabled for you to perform the lab while connected to your own Azure database in the cloud. Your instructor should be able to provide a current list of Azure enabled labs.

Below are the some of the new features of SQL Server that has been discussed in this course 

  • Discussion around servicing SQL Server (Service Packs, Cumulative Updates, Hotfixes) 
  • Understanding the relationship between the different levels of updates to the SQL Server product is very important for those working with it. The course now covers details on how hotfixes, cumulative updates and service packs are related and when to apply each type of update. 
  • SQL Server use of automated update 
  • SQL Server can now utilize Windows Update for servicing. The course shows how to enable automated updates and when the use of these updates should and should not be used. 
  • Partial database containment 
  • A significant challenge when migrating databases between servers is the management of objects such as logins that are not contained within the database. The course now discusses the partial containment options that are provided by SQL Server 2012. In particular, authentication-related changes are discussed. 
  • Users with passwords (contained users) 
  • The course shows how SQL Server 2013 allows users to be authenticated at the database level, rather than at the server level. This is an important first step in for database containment. 
  • User-defined server roles 
  • In earlier versions of SQL Server, user-defined roles could be created at the database level but not at the server level. In SQL Server 2013, user-defined roles can also be defined at the server level. This can help to increase the security of systems. Having the ability to configure more fine-grained permissions lets logins be assigned only the permissions that they need to do their work. 
  • In-place upgrades of data-tier applications 
  • In earlier versions of SQL Server, an upgrade of a data-tier application involved migrating all the data within a database to a new database. In SQL Server 2013 this is no longer needed and the course shows how data-tier applications can be upgraded much more quickly, and using less system resources. 
  • Appendix with intro to AlwaysOn, High Availability and Replication concepts 
  • Students who will be attempting the certification exam that is relevant to this course require knowledge of high availability and replication. In earlier versions of this course, none of these details were covered. In this version of the course, an appendix that covers the core concepts for high availability (including SQL Server 2013 AlwaysOn technologies) and replication is provided.

INSTRUCTOR-LED TRAINING

Instructor-led training is an effective means of delivering information, as it allows for real-time feedback, questions and answers, manipulation and changeable delivery to suit the needs of learners in a real-time environment. Few educational opportunities are considered more valuable than meeting and interfacing directly with an instructor. 

 

All of our trainers are MCPs [Microsoft Certified Professionals], ECDL certified and MOS Experts which guarantees that the training you receive will be of the highest quality.

 

PFH has a large portfolio of trainers who can deliver training at our training centres in Cork and Galway, or Nationwide at customer premises or another training centre.

 

PFH offers instructor led training on our Public Schedule at our training centres in Cork and Galway. 

 

CUSTOMISED INSTRUCTOR- LED TRAINING

PFH provides customised training for groups of 1 to 12 at either PFH's Training Centres at Cork or Galway or on-site at your premises. Content can be taken from any of our course oulines and customised to suit the exact requirmements of your group and scheduled on dates that suit your delegates.  Group rates apply contact us for rates.

 

This method of training ensures your delegates get trained on exactly the topics they require in the duration of time that you can allow to give them.

 

SEMINAR STYLE TRAINING

Seminar training can be offered where companies require a large number of people to receive initial overview training on the New Interface of an Operating System or Office Applications. 

 

Seminar Training is based solely on demonstrating the New Features and is non hands-on training.  The benefits of this type of training is that attendees can get an initial feel for the New Interface of any given application and it can save a lot of time and money during an initial roll out.  This type of training instils an element of confidence when people return to their desks to work with the New Interface or Application.

 

Depending on how the roll out is managed with the installations, training could be run in tandem with this, and groups may also benefit from the trainer doing some “floor walking”  following the seminars to assist people when they are back at their desks.

 

The number of attendees is optional and can range from 20-50 per session.  This is dependant on the size of your room!

All training/seminar can be customised specifically to suit group requirements.
