Everybody would love to find the mythical “go faster” switch in SQL Server.

Unfortunately, this switch does not exist.

There are, however, many things that you can do with minimal effort that can speed up your SQL Server instances. You can fix things that are needlessly slowing down your SQL Server and causing it to work harder. These quick performance wins require a minimum amount of effort to implement and can deliver substantial improvements in performance.

These are issues that, once addressed, will allow your SQL Server instances to run faster. Best of all, very little work is required to fix them. The tips will help you both deal with and head off some widespread problems database administrators and SQL developers struggle with every day. Do not wait for the issues to occur, be proactive, and fix them today. Look for these known problems to get significant performance wins with minimal effort.
