New version odf my old well-known session updated for whole changes which happened iin DBA World in last two years. So, from the ground to the Sky and further - everything for surviving disaster. Which tasks should have been finished BEFORE. Is virtual or physical SQL matter? We talk about systems, databases, peoples, encryption, passwords, certificates and users.
