​Following on from COMP 1630, students who already understand data modeling, relational database design and SQL are provided with an in-depth understanding of designing MS SQL Server 2016 databases.

Topics include: architecture, installing and configuring SQL Server, physical database design, creation, maintenance, security, and high availability solutions. Exercises and labs focus on creating, deploying, optimizing and maintaining enterprise SQL Server 2016 databases to help students obtain an understanding from a database administrator perspective.
