Next month, I will be doing a presentation for the very first SharePoint Saturday event here in Ottawa. Since I have been doing a lot of SharePoint architecture and implementation projects, I submitted a session on improving SharePoint performance by looking at the underlying database system. Majority of the concepts in the presentation apply to any SQL Server instance, not just those running SharePoint databases. There are, however, a few configuration settings that make us SQL Server DBAs cringe but make sense for a system that is dedicated for Sharepoint.
