Readers who find themselves in the position of supporting SQL Server as the back-end to a third-party application or who have had SQL Server dumped on them because they are the "Microsoft person" in the office will be relieved to find they don't need a 1000 page book to get started with SQL Server. If they invest just one hour a day-lunchtime would be perfect-they can be up to speed in a matter of days.
Learn SQL Server Administration in a Month of Lunches is the perfect way to get started with SQL Server operations, including maintenance, backup and recovery, high availability, and performance monitoring. Readers will learn exactly what they can do, and what they shouldn't touch. Most importantly, they'll learn the day-to-day tasks and techniques needed to keep SQL Server humming along smoothly.
