Great database performance starts with great database design. During the database design process it is important to select your datatypes wisely. The wrong choices will often lead to wasted space, increased response times, and less stability. Additionally you run the risk of having your design not scale as well as it should. Leave this session armed with the knowledge you need to help your databases perform at their peak efficiency. Attendees of this session will learn:
  • How to properly select the correct datatypes
  • How to identify poorly chosen datatypes
  • How to mitigate performance issues due to bad datatypes
