SQL Server 2008 R2 is a robust database system that provides a number of database objects used to store and view data. In order to configure a SQL Server 2008 R2 database to meet business requirements, administrators and developers must fully understand how to design, create, and configure these database objects. These objects include tables for storing data in the database, views to allow access to the data within specific tables, and indexes to optimize the performance of the database for data retrieval.
