About me

meMy name is Arthur Baan. I live in the Netherlands together with my wife and our son.

I have been working in IT since 1998. I started as a software engineer, but very soon found out that working with data gave me more satisfaction. Being trained in SQL Server (version 6.5) the first years were hard working with Oracle :), but after a few years I got my change at working with SQL Server and the rest is history.

I have worked with every version of SQL Server since version 6.5, first as a database developer and nowadays as a fulltime DBA. I have no real speciality, but I was lucky (?) enough to be able to use all kinds of HA features of SQL Server, including replication, log shipping and setting up clusters (starting with Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2000)
