  • 17:30 - 20:30 GMT Daylight Time
  • Language: English

You’ve been given the task of optimising the File and Filegroup layout to get the most from your storage. Not sure where to start, or thinking you could get a more from your storage with a different design?

Are your SAN guys telling you your storage can process 2 GB/s but you're only seeing 200 MB/s?

This session will dive into how to optimise your file and filegroup layout strategy to get the most from your I/O Subsytem, including a case study where we took a customers table scans from 500 MB/s to 1.2 GB/s with only a change in filegroup layout.
