Environment Hardening?

I am a Senior DBA at a Fortune 50 company in the United States.

A recent reorganization has placed me onto a new team called "Environment Hardening".

Our mission: "Standardization, Optimization, and Automation".

The four member team contains a Senior DBA from each RDBMS in use at my company.

I am the SQL Server representative. In the SQL Server domain, we have over 500 servers running just over 3600 databases. I intend to blog about what it takes to keep this huge inventory under control.

I think I will have plenty to write about.

In the beginning, expect posts about PowerShell, Policy Based Management, Enterprise Policy Based Management Framework, Central Management Server, and anything else that falls into the mission profile.

I hope you find it interesting and worth your time.
