During the course of optimizing data-access-code with the In-Memory-functionalities in Microsoft SQL Server (memory optimized tables + indexes, memory optimized table valued parameters and natively compiled stored procedures), you may often realize that sometimes you go one step forward and then another one backwards.
It is no secret that I have been very active in the Asian region the last years – mainly in Singapore, Malaysia and India. So, it may not be a surprise that this summer I will be giving a full day PreCon at the now called “Data Platform Summit” in India’s hub for information technology: […]
In this article I will bring together several techniques for troubleshooting a performance- and security-related “phenomenon” I recently noticed when doing some tests with Natively Compiled Stored Procedures.
These are just sublime news, there is no other way to put it: With the Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2016 released today, Microsoft puts an end to the programming-technical differences between the editions (LocalDB, Express, Standard, Web, Enterprise)! As of today, EVERYONE who is already working on SQL Server 2016 can create In-Memory […]
With the total of 4 new index types we have gained since SQL Server 2012 now we also have a total of 4 basic formats (Heap, Clustered Index, Clustered Columnstore Index, memory-optimized “varheap”) for data storage in SQL Server. And what’s more, with SQL Server 2016, these can be combined in various ways.
SQL Server 2016 is finally available and, by extension, the “version 2” of the In-Memory OLTP Engine, if you will. At various international conferences and already at the IX in 2014 I have presented what is behind the In-Memory Engine of SQL Server introduced in SQL Server 2014. Only I had not yet found the […]
It feels like I have just been back from the SQLBits XV in Liverpool, where I introduced the Security Features of the SQL Server 2016 (SQL Server 2016 – Security Obscurity and Encryption), and next thing I know, I am already in the middle of planning the next SQL Server Master-Class on High Availability with […]
مرحبا (“MARR-hah-bah”, Arabic: Hello) This year takes me to yet another part of the world: I have been invited to speak at THE SQL Server Conference in the Middle East: at SQL Gulf 3 taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on April 23rd.
After the great success of the German SQLKonferenz in February, where I had the honor of presenting the new security features of SQL Server 2016 together with Joachim Hammer, the Program Manager of the security teams of the relational SQL Engines at Microsoft in Redmond (more info), I finally found time to go about the […]
This year, from 23 to 25 February, the 3rd ”SQLKonferenz” takes place in Darmstadt. And this year represents a particular peak for me in two regards: For one, my company, Sarpedon Quality Lab®, is for the first time Silver Sponsor of the conference. In this way, I am supporting PASS Deutschland e.V., the German SQL […]
