Will you please help me understand pros and cons of using Ola’s solution over maintenance plan? I have prepared a presentation based on SQL Pass (http://www.pass.org/DownloadFile.aspx?File=ebae1b31) which I will present.
I am also preparing few scenarios which Ola’s solution addresses and maintenance plan solution doesn’t. Can you all please help me explain this more technically?
By the way, we are managing almost 150+ servers (mix of 2008/2012/2014/2016) with Ola’s solution on at least 75% of them. I liked this article by Brent Ozar. But in one the comments, Brent has recommended to use script based solution for the number of servers we have. https://www.brentozar.com/archive/2012/04/maintenance-plans-roombas-suck-good-way/
