Book News Annotation:

This official reference guide to Microsoft's SQL Server 2008 provides concise information for SQL server administrators for performing common tasks with this database software. This volume covers such topics as policy-based management, database security, distributed databases, backup and recovery and system maintenance as well as many other standard database management processes. While the guide does cover installation and configuration of SQL servers for various levels of usage the work is not a beginner's guide and assumes a basic proficiency in Microsoft database conventions and commands. This second edition updates all information for the latest "R2" release of the SQL Server software and up to date additional information and addenda are provided through a companion Microsoft website. Stanek is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional, expert in systems management and the author of over 100 books. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
