SQL Server Storage

  • Benjamin Nevarez


This chapter covers storage from the SQL Server point of view and, although other factors such as availability and recoverability play a very important role in selecting and configuring storage, we focus mostly on performance. Disk is traditionally the slowest component in a database system, so tuning storage for performance is essential and usually comes in two high level areas: directly tuning the storage and tuning the components to make efficient use of the storage. The first area refers to tuning and configuring the storage hardware itself, while the second one relates to tuning the other components of the system to make optimal use of the storage and includes items such as proper SQL Server configuration and creating the right indexes.
