The velocity of change for the Microsoft SQL Server DBA has increased this decade. The spanbetween the releases of SQL Server 2016 and 2017 was only 16 months, the fastest new releaseever. Gone are the days when DBAs had between three to five years to soak in and adjust to newfeatures in the engine and surrounding technologies.

This book is written and edited by SQL Server experts with two goals in mind: to deliver a solid foundational skillset for all of the topics covered in SQL Server configuration and administration, and also to deliver awareness and functional, practical knowledge for the dramatic number of new features introduced in SQL Server 2016 and 2017. We haven’t avoided new content—even content that stretched the boundaries of writing deadlines with late-breaking new releases.release everYou will be presented with not only the “how” of new features but also the “why” and the“when” for their use.
