Hi everyone. This is my first time here, and I am really in need of some help! I am a senior Information Technology Major and I am in my first SQL course where I have to write a report on a company that uses SQL Server. I haven't been able to find any companies in my area, and need to find a company to write my paper on as soon as possible. I just have a set of brief questions; they are as follows (and I understand, for security reasons, if you are unable to answer certain questions, do not feel obligated to do so!):

A brief overview of your company:
What is your position?
What the SQL Server database is used for?

Which version of MS SQL Server is used?
Type of instance(s) is(are) used?
Which authentication mode is used?
Do you utilize SQL Server Dynamic Disk Space Management, and if so, how?
How is data security maintained?
What type of encryption has been implemented?

What type of backups are completed and how often?
How would the database would be restored in the event of data loss?
How do you preserve data integrity within the database?
Do you utilize any monitoring & troubleshooting tools to assess SQL Server performance (SQL Server Profiler, System Monitor, Database Engine Tuning Advisor, etc).

I greatly appreciate anyone willing to help me with my paper. Thank you!

I realize you may not want to share this information with everyone and anyone that can view this discussion. If anyone would be willing to discuss this via email, I can do that as well.
