I’m a SQL Server Consultant and DBA

John SansomMy name is John Sansom and I’m a Microsoft Certified Master(MCM) of SQL Server.

I’m the Technology Operations Manager of the data services team at Expedia, where I’m wholly responsible for one of the largest SQL Server estates in operation.

I specialise in solution architecture and performance-tuning, providing SQL Server consulting expertise to Expedia’s global business teams, as well as independently through my own company Santech Solutions.

I’ve been working with database technology in a variety of flavors for over fifteen years. I absolutely love what I do and genuinely feel privileged to be a part of our tremendous technology community.

Ask anyone who has experience working with SQL Server and they will tell you that the very best thing about it is our community. We’re passionate about our profession and absolutely love helping others with their technology challenges.

“No question asked here goes unanswered. Whatever your database technology challenges or questions are, I will help you. That’s a promise!”

About This Blog

This Blog is a place where I share my own personal thoughts, opinions and experiences about SQL Server, database technology and being a Database Administrator(DBA).

I want to share with you my passion for technology and crazy tales in pursuit of excellence. I hope that together we can learn something new, raise the quality of our art and have some fun along the way. I really do hope you enjoy this blog and I’d love to hear about what you have been getting up to.

It can be tough starting out on your own journey toward becoming a DBA. If you have any questions at all about SQL Server do let me know. I can’t promise you that I’ll always be able to answer all of your questions myself but I can certainly get you heading in the right direction.
