Turmoil has engulfed your IT environment, thrusting your database into an epic period of unrest—and not just because you’ve been awake for the past 36 hours. Imperial forces have seized control of your critical IT components (servers, applications, database, the coffee machine, etc.), and are threatening to unleash a catastrophic chain of events. We’re talking expensive queries, database bottlenecks, and wait time for dayz…. A quick resolution is your only hope. Right now this scenario could very well be standing in your way of being seated with popcorn in hand when the opening crawl for Episode VII starts to roll.
