Tim Radney - Database Professional

Tim Radney - Database Professional by Tim Radney I am a Sr DBA for a top 40 US bank. I live in the south eastern US. I have been working with database since 1999 but only full time for the past three years.

It was time for an upgrade

I am not one of these anti PC sorta guys, but I do love my MacBook Pro.  I have owned a PC since 1993 when I got my Packard Bell 386 with Windows 3.1.  Even with my MacBook I have 9 Windows flavored VM’s on it.  To be honest, I have never had Windows run better than as a VM on my MacBook.  Due to having so many VM’s the 8 GB of ram I had just didn’t cut it on some occasions.

With wanting to dive more into Windows Failover Clustering and wanting to experiment more with SQL 2012 and “Always On” I knew I needed a bit more horsepower to do all the playing and studying I want “need” to do.  I posed the question to a superior and got the green light to make a modest increase in memory.  I can not wait to put this 16 GB of ram to the test.

Next I hope to get a Thunderbolt enclosure with an SSD to put a few VM’s on.
