Lindsey Allen will peel back the curtain on SQL Server 2016 new feature Operational Analytics. We continue to invest heavily in in-memory technology and have now introduced one of the more important features we are releasing as part of SQL Server.
We all know that correct indexing is king when it comes to achieving high levels of performance in SQL Server. When indexing combines with the enterprise features partitioning and compression, you can find substantial performance gains.
Do you have an application running with an in-market version of SQL Server, such as 2012 or 2014? Then this session is for you! We will see more in-depth what enhancements are in the latest SPs and 2016, and why you should install them.
In this session, we will introduce a step-by-step approach to adopting the technology, aimed at beginners who are interested in how it can fit into their own environments.
An advanced look into how memory works in modern servers, on modern processors and how to leverage it with SQL Server.
In this session we'll look over some of the things which you should be looking at within your virtual environment to ensure that you are getting the performance out of it that you should be.
SQL Sever 2016 is just around the corner and with it come some great new features and enhancements to existing capabilities, in this session we will look at some of these and understand how they might make us change the way that we look at designing
This presentation will focus on techniques and practices for using memory optimized tables in SQL Server to build “warm” data stores from a variety of application data sources (logs,traces, performance statistics)
This presentation includes an overview of SQL Server 2012 & a deep dive into SQL Server 2014 columnstore indexes, including a review of the architecture, as well as the challenges, workarounds, travails, & big wins at customer sites
We have all heard about In-memory OLTP and how fast it can go, but just how do you use it? In this session we will look at how to migrate a system to use this new capability.
There are still environments which serve one single SQL Server database for both critical applications & reporting. Budgeting issues and infrastructure bottlenecks kill the application to be better managed and maintained. What could be the solution?
SQL server 2014 is one of their measure releases. Where Microsoft has done a superb job. There are so many enhancement we have in SQL Server 2014. In my session I will show you my top 5 features.
This session will show you how the query optimizer has been updated to work with the new SQL Server 2014 features and to provide better performance to existing ones. Topics include Hekaton, the new cardinality estimator and incremental statistics.
Come along to see us attempt to optimise and redesign the “Dell DVD Store” sample application from a modest 100 transactions per minute to a million transactions per minute.
Hekaton is the Greek word for 100 - the goal of In-Memory OLTP in SQL Server 2014 is to improve query performance up to 100 times. In this session we will look under the cover of Hekaton and the Multi Version Concurrency Control (MVCC) principles.
In this session, we will share some of the hard lessons learned from the first large deployments in Analysis Services Tabular.
Still not sure of which is faster? Let us put this matter to rest once and for all. We will measure every single aspect of the execution of a stored procedure vs. its Ad-Hoc query counterpart, and only one will prevail!
This session will take a look at how parallel select into can be scaled to the nth degree in SQL Server such that all available hardware resources are utilised as fully as possible.
Memory is one of the most confusing and least understood topics for SQL Server. In this session, we will discuss and demonstrate tools and techniques for memory related problems that can occur with the SQL Server Database Engine.
Dive deep into Columnstore Indexes and discover their advantages and some of the limitations. Look into some of the Columnstore Indexes myths, understand more complex concepts of Batch Mode & Query Processing with another depth.
Join this session to make a deep dive into how SQL Server implements physical locking with lightweight synchronization objects like Latches and Spinlocks.
What is In-Memory OLTP? How is it architected? Where can I use in-memory technology in my solutions? Learn this and more from the Microsoft team
Learn how flash storage accelerates In-Memory OLTP performance. We will also cover limitations with SQL Server In-Memory OLTP.
In this session, you will learn the internals of SSIS and why having a deep understanding is important to solve performance problems, and how the control flow and data flow engine work.
In this session we'll look over some of the things which you should be looking at within your virtual environment to ensure that you are getting the performance out of it that you should be.
