Here are a few things that I hear very often: I already have a SharePoint administrator, and I don’t need a database expert. Or, my database is already configured because we already have SharePoint installed on its default settings. Or, Microsoft has told us not to touch the SharePoint database. All these things may be partial or 100% true. The problem is that living your life, or administrating a database, according on one single thought is not good. Technology is more advanced than that, and one single idea is not going to help your database move and evolve with the times.
Of course, SharePoint’s default settings are great, it has “best practices” to follow and they were well designed. But some things are beyond the scope of SharePoint. SharePoint does backup, and helps with performance tuning, but its maintenance is not accurate, and needs to be taken care of.
So question number one is: had Microsoft done the best job? And do you understand what is going on with your server? Well, I will be teaching a class at the SharePoint conference in Singapore on January 16, and this is exactly what I am going to address. I am going to be giving a SharePoint Tips & Tricks in Singapore. I guarantee that if you come to this session you will learn something so cool you can walk out the session and directly implement it. So please, come to the conference. I guarantee you will get amazing performance from your server. I hope to see you in Singapore!
