Last Weeks Top “Reading” Links #86

2012-01-013It’s Monday time for this week’s weekly link round-up.  If you want to catch these links “live” (so exciting), follow me on twitter (@StrateSQL).  And see these throughout the day as I tweet out links of things I find interesting.  While these links aren’t the answer to life, the universe, and everything, they often share a few things about SQL Server and related technology topics that others may find useful. The links included in this summary are those prefixed with “Reading” and are items I’ve read over the past few days, usually after hours when sharing would be less than useful, and spaced out to avoid spamming.  The content of the links usually pertain to SQL Server, technology, and career topics; which I think others would find useful.

The Most Popular “Reading” Link

This weeks most popular link last week is from a blog post written by Joey D’Antoni (Blog | @jdanton) on his favorite new feature of SQL Server 2014.  While there are many great new features, Joey chooses Backup Encryption in Standard Edition.  From a data security perspective, this is a great choice, check out Joey’s blog to read more.
