SQL Server Performance

    This might not be the best forum but I found this to be most suitable: The database I've made needs some extensive optimalization on certain parts of it and I don't feel qualified even to take these decicions on my own. I have created the entire system myself, but it really has some intense needs and I'm not sure if I'm able to fix it all.

    What I need is a person or company that has *good* experience in query/database-optimalization, preferably in the greater London-area. Does anybody know of such a person/company, have links maybe? References?

    Thanx Brad, just sent him an email through the website (that btw needs some updating!). Is he a friend of yours? Do you know him/his work well?

    I don't know Neil personally, but he has written some articles for my website and he is very sharp.

    Hi Frettmaestro,

    I may also be able to help. I am currently on contract, but I may still be able to help out. I have SQL Server at home as well, so can do some work from home too if needed. I've been using SQLServer since v4.2, and have been a MCDBA since v6

    my email address is twan.van.beers@xtra.co.nz, I can send you a full cv if you like.

    Cheers

    I somehow lost my subscription to this post so I haven't recieved notification about the updates since I was last here. I apologize for not replying sooner.

    Brad: after contacting Neil Boyle I was referred to Tony Rogerson because Neil was just to busy. Tony Rogerson who happened to be a SQL-Server MVP came over here one day, worked his magic and left. This was about a week ago and since then I have been seen walking around with a constant smile on my face. It was just amazing the things he did, and even though it probably was just a walk in the park for him (and maybe would have been for you guys aswell) the differences was just mindblowing. He charged a good deal of money for a days work but if I had known what he could do I could have paid him twice what he got...

    Satya and Twan: thanx for the offers but as you see, things have worked out...for now. The database still needs alot of tuning but hopefully I'll be able to tweak a little myself now.I got rid of the major bottlenecks.
