With more than 90% of the content accessed via SharePoint stored in SQL Server it is important to understand the relationship between the two products. Without the correct configuration of SQL Server it can have a detrimental impact on the performance of SharePoint. There are critical SQL Server configurations that can be made to that will optimize SharePoint. In this session Penny will explain how SharePoint and SQL components relate to one another.
