Obviously my name is Sean Gallardy (if the URL didn’t give it away), I used to work in Microsoft Support as an Escalation Engineer on SQL Server. Previous to that I did many different things including being a SQL Server MCM (2008/2012), programming, and some fun hardware projects.

You’ll probably recognize me from DBA Stack Exchange, MSDN Forums (semi-active), etc., and I typically like to work on the Storage Engine, Security, and High availability parts of SQL Server.

I created this blog (again) after many years as I used to blog for the SQL Server PFE team. Sadly, after a few (in my opinion) bad decisions from internal groups on the fate and future usage of blogs at Microsoft it led me back to this.

These blogs are my own personal opinions and views, they do not reflect my my current employers’ views or stances. These blogs are provided as-is with no warranty expressed or implied. If you do something stupid like randomly copy/paste a script from the internet and run it in your environment and all your stuff breaks, that’s on you – ya dolt.

I prescribe to the phrase, “just say no” to social media. Quit looking for me on twitter, I’m not there – don’t care to be and don’t want to be.
