How to Optimize SQL Server Instances You Can’t Control

As a database professional, you know the standard procedure when one of your SQL servers is slow; collect data and identity bottlenecks, then modify queries, indexes or pertinent configurations to try to speed things up. If you can go through this process quickly, test your changes, deploy your solution to production, and verify that it all works, great. Everyone is happy and you are the hero.

However, sometimes you don’t have all the access you need to troubleshoot and change the database in question.

Finding the Solution

Now the reasons for your access issues can vary. For example, intricacies of support contracts with third parties can include clauses that prevent you from adding indexes or changing queries or security requirements or difficulties in implementing changes in a 24/7 production environment can be your roadblock.

That’s not to mention cases when the SQL code is very complex, or cases where the SQL code resides in the application tier, in the midst of a jungle of C# or Java code. Parsing through thousands of lines from a SQL trace to understand what is going on could take a significant amount of time.

At times, even “throwing hardware” at the problem may not be an option as it could take a long time to get budgets approved, hardware provisioned, and plan for the roll-out.

So what if you could speed up your Microsoft  SQL Server by installing software that works between the database server and the operating system?

If you can relate to any of the things that I just described or are intrigued about a solution that can address these challenges, then I encourage you to attend my webinar, where I will introduce you to MaxParallel, a solution that can accelerate data access for busy servers with spare CPU capacity. MaxParallel works by managing data access with its own scheduler and optimizer, removing bottlenecks without requiring SQL Server changes. I will conduct a demo using HammerDB, a stress test tool, to illustrate the performance improvements associated with MaxParallel.
