Inside SQLOS 2012

This is a 3 hour Session: Have you ever wanted to know more about what powers the SQL Server Database Engine? This three hour session covers SQLOS (SQL Operating System), which abstracts the Windows OS from the rest of the Database Engine and provides the core infrastructure for SQLSERVR.EXE. This session isn’t for the faint of heart: It will move into the “600” level for most attendees, covering some of the most complex components in the SQL Database Engine. We’ll focus on SQL Server 2012 but discuss changes where appropriate from older versions. There’s practical value in understanding SQLOS internals, including helping you with SQL Server planning, design, management, monitoring, and troubleshooting. And this session will feature plenty of demos. I promise your brain will hurt when you leave this session, but I also promise you will have learned new things about the SQL Server Database Engine that you can put to use as administrators and developers.
