A SQL Server DBA originally from Swansea, Wales but am currently living in Dublin, Ireland.

I’ve been working with relational databases (in one form or another) for over 10 years and have been a SQL Server DBA for 6 of those.


The online SQL Server community has helped me out immensely throughout my career, whether from providing reference material in blog posts, or answering my (sometimes obscure) questions on forums. So, to try and say thank you, I would like to contribute my own experiences in the hope that they could benefit someone out there.

So here’s my general ramblings and thoughts about working as a SQL Server DBA.
