My clients are lucky. I have walked in the door and within a week, with no hardware changes, they saw their SharePoint installations running 400 percent faster than before. I know that’s a tall claim, but as a consultant with very wide exposure, I can say with some confidence that most SharePoint installations’ databases do not get the attention they deserve. Maybe it is a disciplinary thing, DBAs are usually not SharePoint experts, and SharePoint experts are usually not DBAs, so the poor SharePoint SQL Server is left alone to suffer under its default settings.
