Think your SQL DB can handle it? Prove it.

Web developers have lots of great tools for simulating times of stress ... BUT how do we stress test the DB - the critical component in lots of processes - has the DB stress been neglected?

Microsoft Load Testing works perfectly and 'point and clicky' for SQL Server too - and it should be a tool in your armoury if you manage OR develop any form of critical SQL DB.

Come to this session and see how to simply and quickly apply some stress to your DB in a controlled environment _before_  that happens in production and the finger-pointing starts. Front-end developers have proved their code - can you say the same for the DB?
