A couple of months ago we mentioned an upcoming book entitled “Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administration for Oracle DBAs” which is aimed at experienced Oracle DBAs that want to use their existing Oracle knowledge as a springboard to learning SQL Server. The good news is that the book is now available!
“Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administration for Oracle DBAs” shows you how to use your experience as an Oracle DBA to get up to speed quickly on the Microsoft SQL Server platform. Authors with real-world expertise in both Oracle and SQL Server introduce you to fundamental concepts, such as SQL Server architecture and core administration, before guiding you through advanced techniques, including performance optimization, high availability and disaster recovery. Platform comparisons, on-the-job examples, and answers to questions raised by Oracle DBAs learning the SQL Server environment help build your skills. The book is co-authored by Microsoft data platform technical specialist Mark Anderson; James Fox, an independent Oracle and SQL Server consultant in the UK; and Microsoft Certified Architect and SQL Server MVP Christian Bolton.
