Everything You Need to Know About SQL Server Indexes

Janis Griffin, Senior Sales Consultant / DBA Quest Software

You probably already know that indexes make your queries go faster. But do you know all the different types of indexes in SQL Server and when to use them? Also with each new release of SQL Server, there are new features that can impact how indexes function and are maintained. Finally, knowing how the different types of indexes work can help you make better indexing choices when tuning your queries. In this presentation, Janis Griffin, Senior Sales Consultant at Quest, will review current SQL Server index structures/options, discuss how they work, when they should be used and how to maintain them. Examples of all the index types such as hash, in-memory, columnstore, filtered, etc… will be shown. This presentation is a must see for DBAs, Developers, Application Architects and anyone else who is interesting in maintaining high performance SQL Server applications.
