Kurzbeschreibung
This book covers index design, one aspect of database tuning. It will teach the reader how to improve the performance of relational databases (IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and others) with indexes designed for current hardware (gigabytes of central storage, large disk drives with RAID 5, etc...).
