If you've invested in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (or are seriously considering it), you'll find the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Resource Kit to be an absolutely essential companion.
First, there's complete lifecycle coverage for getting SQL Server 2000 deployed efficiently and keeping it running smoothly. That includes critical planning information, guidance on Microsoft's latest DBA tools, backup/recovery techniques, and Microsoft's best wisdom on optimization, troubleshooting, and security.
You'll also find advanced availability and scalability techniques, from clustering to data center best practices, as well as coverage of SQL Server 2000's improved (and thankfully simplified) replication capabilities. There's even coverage of using VB to create merge-replication custom conflict resolvers that apply your specific data or business decision rules.
You'll find extensive guidance on building data warehouses with SQL Server 2000: designing, partitioning, data extraction, transformation, loading, and Microsoft's souped-up Analysis Services. You'll also learn how to customize internal web portals with Microsoft's latest Digital Dashboard framework.
There's a CD-ROM full of tools and resources (including a complete eBook and excerpts in Pocket PC format), plus another disk containing a 120-day SQL Server 2000 trial version. No other SQL Server 2000 resource compares. (Bill Camarda)
