Backup strategy

Have you found yourself troubleshooting the database your app depends on, and google fails to provide insight on why it's not working? Application developers have a lot of knowledge to keep current on, including new languages and extensions. One area that is still relevant is databases, which support the backend performance of the app. When that database starts causing performance issues and no database professional is available, what do you do? In this session we will teach you the key concepts and terms we use daily as database professionals. We'll give you insight into basic metrics we check to determine if database performance is really the root cause or not. Finally, we'll provide recommendations on database backups, configurations and techniques that should be addressed on every DB environment.
