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. This hand-on course is SQL Server 2016 specific, so those who have taken MS SQL 2000/2005/2008/2012 will also benefit and be able to better plan migration to SQL Server 2016. 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. Successful participants will learn to install and configure SQL Server 2016, to plan and set policies for system access, end-users, back-ups, disaster recovery, and to troubleshoot and to manage database security. Please note: COMP 4677 will be offered for the last time in the Spring 2023 term.
