SQL Server 2005 Distilled

SQL Server 2005 Distilled (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


SQL Server 2000 has been one of Microsoft's most popular products ever, with more than 1 million licenses sold; there is a huge installed base. Robust sales of many books on SQL Server attest to this. The next release of SQL Server, version 2005, represents five years of development work by Microsoft. It will be a major upgrade from SQL Server 2000, with many major changes in the core technology. After a period of testing the new product, most companies are expected to upgrade to the new version. In fact, tens of thousands of companies have already been working with the beta. As companies evaulate whether and when to upgrade, they'll appreciate the advice of an insider such as Eric Brown, who was intimately involved in evangelizing about the product for three years. He knows what questions companies have, and what questions they don't even know they need to ask. They'll also appreciate the concise, dense "distilled" format - a handy, quick reference to the most common parts and new features of SQL Server 2005 delivered in a short and focused presentation. This book should appeal to anyone who works with SQL Server - administrators, developers, and technical managers alike. After they have read this book, then they will be ready to go on to one of the big, doorstop references to SQL Server; but this is the book they will turn to first

Eric Brown's professional computing work began in earnest in 1996 when he began work at Multiple Zones International as a product manager. While there, he realized the next big wave was the Internet, and raced to get a job at a dot-com. He worked for three dot-coms before ending up on the SQL Server Product Team at Microsoft. At one point in his early DB years, they cut the edge of SQL Server capabilities by owning a 500GB data warehouse running SQL Server 7 and 2000. In the three years he was on the team, he ran "Yukon" readiness. Brown has written a column for SQL Server Magazine, and has written extensively about SQL Server for MSDN Magazine and MSDN online library. Since leaving Microsoft officially, he has worked on this book and started an e-commerce hosting company. He is now working for Quilogy as a senior consultant on the Business Intelligence National Practice.
