I’m Ben Miller and I want to help DBAs succeed at work.

The modern DBA is under a lot of pressure. You have to do too much with fewer resources and very few people understand the value of your work until something breaks. I didn’t start as a DBA—I worked my way up (and sideways and backwards). Chances are, I’ve been where you are today. 

Let’s Make the DBA’s Job Easier

About Ben Miller
The DBA Duck

I’m one of a few Microsoft Certified Masters out there, and I’m also a Microsoft MVP. I’ve been working with data since the 90s, learning how to find the truth buried inside servers. I saw so much potential—which is why I started learning the C/C++ ropes to become a developer. Once there, I wanted to learn how to build networks for better systems, so I became a System Administrator. Today I specialize in SQL Server, performance tuning, database infrastructure, High Availability, and PowerShell development for automating SQL Server tasks. There isn’t an area of data that doesn’t excite me.

I’ve been a member of the SQL Server Community since 1998 through answering questions in forums, speaking and mentoring fellow DBAs. I still speak regularly and mentor others in automation and bettering their skill sets to get more done in the same amount of time.
