I started ScaleSQL Consulting in the summer of 2009. I spent the previous nine years doing SQL Server consulting as part of a partnership. My goal is to make sure people can use their data as it grows. This means we pay attention to a number of areas: backups and maintenace, performance tuning and scaling up and scaling out. We really are trying to make the world safe for data!
