Jared Karney


  Before handing over a new SQL Server to DevOps or a Dev team, there are several things you should
do to follow best practices and ensure optimal performance. In this session, Jared will go through his build
checklist and explain why he is doing things like setting Cost Threshold for Parallelism, verifying
Kerberos, and checking disk drive settings. When you leave this session, you will have the knowledge
and tools to successfully implement a new SQL Server instance – and a copy of his checklist!


Jared Karney has been a SQL Server DBA since 2007 and was a Business Analyst and SQL Developer
before that. He currently works at Coyote Logistics (A UPS Company) as a Sr. SQL Server DBA. His
interests include performance tuning, automation, internals, and overall architecture.
