Speed up your slow databases. . .With Constraints


Recording: None

Speed up your slow databases. . .With Constraints!

In this session we will cover constraint basics (not null, check, primary key/unique, foreign keys), provide standard use cases, and address misconceptions. You’ll see not only how constraints can improve performance, but also how poor data integrity can waste time and have long-term consequences. Prevention is worth a lot more than cure!

Rob Volk does deranged things with SQL Server, so you don't have to. A DBA in the Metro Atlanta area since 2001, he has also abused other database and programming platforms elsewhere and elsewhen. In his spare time he accomplishes more than he does on the job, just don't tell his boss.
