Maximizing SQL 2012 Performance for SharePoint 2013

As a SharePoint Consultant I get to see dozens of SharePoint farms every year, and one of the most common complaints I get from clients – is that SharePoint is slow. A lot of people think that SharePoint is slow because the SharePoint servers are lacking resources or, simply, because SharePoint is a slow product. Although resources allocated to the SharePoint servers (e.g. Web Front Ends and App servers) are important, not a lot of people realize that SharePoint performance is directly related to the database, SQL Server. In fact, 94% of SharePoint data is stored in SQL.

In this whitepaper, we will explore many options on how to optimize SQL Server 2012 for SharePoint 2013.
