SQL Server is officially released today. With In-Memory OLTP (“Hektaon”), Clustered Columnstore Indexes, Azure integration, AlwaysOn enhancements, Buffer Pool Extension, a new Cardinality Estimator, Delayed Durability, and other smaller but VERY handy features, SQL Server 2014 is an exciting version.
On this show, we talk all about the features of the new version.
We covered quite a lot of topics. Among them are auditing, Extended Events and Event Notifications, cluster issues, database unit tests, SSMS Add-ins and Hadoop. In addition, we have a countdown featuring the 10 best presentations Pass Summit 2013.
This episode is the recording of the live show we had on the February meeting of the Israeli SQL Server user group. We had a great discussion with the crowd about Clustered Indexes vs. Heaps, load testing, the cloud, Filtered Indexes, SQL Alerts, and much more.
We also conducted a quick survey about relevant topics for future meetings of the group.
This time, we’re going freestyle. We talk about a wide variety of topics, spanning query tuning, good and bad defaults, Tempdb, Azure, important trace flags, Logon Triggers and much more..
We don’t forget recent and upcoming events, and in addition, Guy shares his special birthday celebrations and raises an idea for a new reality show..
If you don’t already know, we will record a live show on the next Israeli SQL Server user group meeting. We will have 3 mics: One for Guy, one for Matan and one that will travel between people in the audience. Click here to register!
