This Thursday, 10AM GMT, I will be hosted by Dell’s Richard Douglas (blog|twitter) for a webcast. I will present my session called “Small Changes Can Make a World of Difference”, talking about a bunch of “small” features that were introduced in SQL Server 2012 and 2014, and can help DBAs a lot.
Among of the topics I’ll cover:
- IO throtteling with SQL Server 2014 Resource Governor
- Buffer Pool Extension to SSDs
- Online schema changes
- Partition Switch and Online Index Operations improvements
- Features that can boost productivity when working with SSMS
- SQL Server 2014 Delayed Durability
- What is sys.dm_exec_query_profiles and why it’s so revolutionary?
- and more..
