In the last 27 of my more than 30 years as an IT Professional I spent the majority of the time exploring the deeper inner workings of SQL Server and his features while working for entertainment, pharmaceutical, financial, healthcare and manufacturing industries. The main focus of my work is to architect, plan and provide a reliable, highly available, secure  and scalable  infrastructure for and with the features of SQL Server. This covers all angles from hardware, network, storage systems, Operating systems, SQL Server configuration and the Data Access Layer of applications; 
Over 15 years ago I decided it's time to share all the findings and the gathered know how with the SQL Server community and doing do ever since through conference, event and user group speaking and books.
