Antonios Chatzipavlis

Βγήκε αυτό σήμερα νομίζω ότι αξίζει κανείς να το έχει δίπλα του. Είναι από τα βιβλία που πρέπει να είναι πάντα πάνω πάνω στο γραφείο του DBA.

Σας παραθέτω την περιγραφή του όπως είναι

Καλό διάβασμα

Καλό Πασχα σε όλους με υγεία



627383.inddWe’re happy to announce that Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administrator's Pocket Consultant, Second Edition, by William Stanek, has shipped to the printer. The book’s ISBN is 9780735627383, the book includes 17 chapters and 736 pages, and it will be available after April 21. The book’s first edition has been updated for the R2 of SQL Server 2008. Below is more info about the book. Check back later for excerpts from the book’s chapters.


Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administrator’s Pocket Consultant, Second Edition,
is designed to be a concise and compulsively usable resource for SQL Server
2008 and SQL Server 2008 Release 2 (R2) administrators. It covers everything you need to know to perform the core administrative tasks for SQL Server and is the
readable resource guide that you’ll want on your desk at all times. Because the focus is on giving you maximum value in a pocket-sized guide, you don’t have to wade through hundreds of pages of extraneous information to find what you’re looking for. Instead, you’ll find exactly what you need to get the job done.

This book is designed to be the one resource you turn to whenever you have
questions about SQL Server administration. To this end, the book zeroes in on
daily administration procedures, frequently used tasks, documented examples, and options that are representative while not necessarily inclusive. One of the key goals is to keep content concise enough that the book is compact and easy to navigate while also ensuring that the book contains as much information as possible. Instead of a 1,000-page tome or a 100-page quick reference, you get a valuable resource guide that can help you quickly and easily perform common tasks, solve problems, and implement advanced SQL Server technologies such as replication, distributed queries, and multiserver administration.

Who Is This Book For?

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administrator’s Pocket Consultant, Second Edition, covers the Standard, Enterprise, Developer, Web, and Workgroup editions of SQL Server.
The book is designed for:

  • Current SQL Server database administrators
  • Accomplished users who have some administrator responsibilities
  • Administrators migrating to SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 from
    previous versions
  • Administrators transitioning from other database architectures

To include as much information as possible, I had to assume that you have basic
networking skills and a basic understanding of SQL Server. With this in mind, I don’t devote entire chapters to understanding SQL Server architecture or running simple SQL queries. But I do cover SQL Server installation, configuration, enterprise-wide server management, performance tuning, optimization, maintenance, and much more.

I also assume that you’re fairly familiar with SQL commands and stored procedures as well as the standard Windows user interface. If you need help learning SQL basics, you should read other resources (many of which are available from Microsoft Press).

How Is This Book Organized?

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administrator’s Pocket Consultant, Second Edition, is
designed to be used in the daily administration of SQL Server, and as such the book is organized according to job-related tasks rather than SQL Server features. Before you use this book, you should be aware of the difference between the Administrator’s Pocket Consultant titles and the Administrator’s Companion titles. Both types of books are designed to be a part of an overall administrator’s library, but books in the Administrator’s Pocket Consultant series are the down-and-dirty, in-the-trenches books, and Administrator’s Companion titles are the comprehensive tutorials and references that cover every aspect of deploying a product or technology in the enterprise.
