Sreekanth’s Profile – About Me

Hello! My name is Sreekanth Bandarla, an enthusiastic SQL Server DBA. I’ve a decent amount of exposure to Microsoft SQL Server 7/2000 and a very solid  exposure to SQL Server 2005/2008/2008R2/2012/2014/2016 environments. I became an MCITP – SQL Server 2008 Database Administrator in the year 2010 and achieved MCSA 2012/2014 in year 2014. I love to explore and learn any emerging technologies w.r.t  SQL Server and to share my little knowledge with my fellow DBAs. Am specialized in architecting SQL Servers, Installations/configurations, Validating and hardening Microsoft SQL Servers with appropriate Configurations, Designing/Implementing/Maintaining and troubleshooting HA and DR solutions in accordance with RTOs and RPOs, defining database standards as per the best practices/client requirements, defining benchmarks, providing day to day database support, maintaining Security/Audit Requirements,offering production support and mentoring my peers as needed. I’ve solid working experience on supporting MOSS 2007/SharePoint Server 2010/System Center Databases, VMWare, System Center Data Protection Manager,Active Directory, All windows Server platforms and assisted my team(s) as needed. Currently busy exploring Azure and Amazon RDS for SQL Server.

This blog is actually a small attempt where I can reach out to SQL DBA community in my way rather than always sticking with my internal team(s). I strongly believe this is one of the best ways where I can learn a lot of new things from all other fabulous DBA’s out there and also the best way to share my little knowledge to our community.
