Module 3: Designing the Physical Structure of SQL Server 2008
This module describes file placement considerations for different functionalities in SQL Server 2008, which helps to improve performance and availability. This module covers the use of partitioning to improve database performance. This module also describes the importance of full-text indexing.
  • Introduction to the Physical Structure of a Database
  • Planning for Partitioning
  • Planning for Full-Text Indexing
Module 4: Designing a Strategy for Maintaining a Database in SQL Server 2008
This module describes the importance of keeping the database up-to-date and the database performing in optimal state. This includes keeping statistics updated and ensuring that a proper index is deployed and implemented. This module also covers the use of database compression to save the disk consumption and to improve the overall performance of a database.
  • Designing a Strategy for Maintaining Statistics for a Database
  • Designing a Strategy for Maintaining Indexes
  • Designing a Strategy for Database Compression
Module 5: Designing Solutions for Managing SQL Server 2008
This module describes the new approach of managing SQL Servers that has been introduced in SQL Server 2008. It also describes the importance of having a centralized administrative model in your organization by implementing policy-based management. This module also describes how to prevent accidental database changes by using DDL triggers and how to use Change Data Capture (CDC) to monitor data changes in the database for compliance reasons.
  • Designing a Policy-Based Management Strategy
  • Controlling Resource Usage by using Resource Governor
  • Auditing Database Changes
Module 6: Automating the Database Management Strategy for SQL Server 2008
This module describes the use of SQL Server Agent and scripts, such as VBScripts and SQL PowerShell, to automate some routine jobs which administrators perform often. This module also covers the use of event notification that helps you to monitor your database for specific events and notify the administrator when the event occurs.
  • Managing SQL Server Agent
  • Automating Administrative Tasks in SQL Server
  • Monitoring Events in SQL Server
Module 7: Designing a Strategy for Securing SQL Server 2008

  • Monitoring SQL Server Instances
  • Monitoring SQL Server Databases
  • Monitoring Multiple SQL Servers by Using Data Collection
Module 9: Designing a Strategy for Content Distribution in SQL Server 2008
This module describes the different methods of distributing data to multiple servers. This module describes how to use remote query with linked server and the considerations of using distributed transactions on query span across multiple servers. This module also discusses the use of SSIS to perform data transportation between servers and it covers the method for troubleshooting SSIS packages.
  • Distributing Data in SQL Server 2008
  • Working with Distributed Queries
  • Managing Distributed Content by Using Distributed Transactions
  • Managing SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Packages
  • Setting Up Scalable Shared Databases
Module 10: Designing a Strategy for Replication in SQL Server 2008
This module provides more in-depth discussions on using replication.This module also talks about using replication, specifically snapshot and transactional replication, which is one-way replication, to replicate data to other servers. Finally, this module describes the way to set up merge and peer-to-peer replication, which should be used for multi-update origin scenarios.
  • Designing a Replication Strategy
  • Setting up Snapshot Replication
  • Setting up Peer-To-Peer Replication
Module 11: Designing a High-Availability Solution for SQL Server 2008
This module describes the different high-availability features available in SQL Server 2008. The module then covers the scenarios of using them in an organization. This module also covers the considerations for choosing the right high-availability solution for an organization.
