As much as you love SQL Server, do you cringe anytime you hear that you'll need to stand up yet another SQL Server instance? Sure it's fun, but who has the time? Maybe you've thought there must be a better way of doing this? Sure, you have the ability to generate an unattended install file, but what about all the other things that will need to be done? In this talk, we will explore a process that was created to truly automate not just the SQL Server install, but all of the configurations and the deployment of your organizations standard objects, all using a set of PowerShell scripts that you can download and use today. This session will review the process that has saved hundreds of hours for one organization and can do the same for yours.
