Overview

You are a database administrator for a company named Litware, Inc.

Litware is a book publishing house.

Litware has a main office and a branch office.

 

You are designing the database infrastructure to support a new web-based application that is being developed.

The web application will be accessed at www.litwareinc.com.

Both internal employees and external partners will use the application.

 

You have an existing desktop application that uses a SQL Server 2005 database named App1_DB.

App1_Db will remain in production.

 

Requirements

Planned Changes

You plan to deploy a SQL Server 2012 instance that will contain two databases named Database1 and Database2.

 

Database1 will contain two tables named Orders and OrderDetails.

Database1 will also contain a stored procedure named usp_UpdateOrderDetails.

The stored procedure is used to update order information.

 

The stored procedure queries the Orders table twice each time the procedure executes.

Each query against the Orders table must return the same data.

All statements in the stored procedure run in a single transaction.

 

Database1 will contain several queries that access data in the Database2 tables.

Database2 will contain a table named Inventory.

Inventory will contain over 100 GB of data.

 

The Inventory table will have two indexes:

a clustered index on the primary key and a nonclustered index.

The column that is used as the primary key will use the identity property.

 

Database2 will contain a stored procedure named usp_UpdateInventory.

Usp_UpdateInventory will manipulate several small data sets of up to 100 rows each.

Each data set will be used multiple times.

 

Data from Database2 will be accessed periodically by an external application named Application1.

The data from Database2 will be sent to a database named App1_Db1 as soon as changes occur to the data in Database2.

 

Litware plans to use offsite storage for all SQL Server 2012 backups.

 

Business Requirements

You have the following requirements:

 

Ÿ   Costs for new equipment must be minimized.

Ÿ   External access to the databases must be encrypted.

Ÿ   Development effort must be minimized whenever possible.

Ÿ   The databases must be available if the SQL Server service or the storage solution fails.

Ÿ   Database administrators must receive a detailed report that contains allocation errors and data corruption.

Ÿ   Application developers must be denied direct access to the database tables.

Ÿ   Applications must be denied direct access to the tables.

Ÿ   You must encrypt the backup files to meet regulatory compliance requirements.

Ÿ   The encryption strategy must minimize changes to the databases and to the applications.
