Chapter 2. SQL Server 2005 Architecture

Throughout this book, I’ll drill down into the details of specific features of the Microsoft SQL Server Database Engine. In this chapter, you’ll get a high-level view of the components of that engine and how they work together. My goal is to help you understand how the topics covered in subsequent chapters fit into the overall operations of the engine.

In this chapter, however, I’ll dig deeper into one big area of the SQL Server engine that isn’t covered later: the SQL operating system (SQLOS) and, in particular, the components related to memory management and scheduling.
