This Wednesday I will be presenting for the PASS Virtualization Virtual Chapter at 11AM CST on one of my favorite topics, you guessed it – virtualization! I am presenting a new presentation called “Squeezing the Most Performance from your VMware-Based SQL Server”. I am also starting to work on an equivalent presentation for Microsoft Hyper-V 2012, so stay tuned for a follow up presentation!

Squeezing the Most Performance from your VMware-Based SQL Server

Feburary 13th, 10 MST, 11 CST

Sure, your SQL Server is up and running. Anyone can click through a SQL Server install nowadays. But… is it running at its peak potential? Do you have your VMware environment configured properly? Have you measured the performance lately? Your business-critical SQL Server performance does not have to suffer just because it was virtualized. Very specific VMware and SQL Server tuning tips and tricks will be presented in this session.

I am always excited to speak on the topics of virtualization and performance, and love the opportunity to help educate. Please attend, bring your questions, and let’s have some fun!

Also speaking – Glenn Berry

He starts soon after I finished at 1PM CST. Make sure to register ahead of time so you are eligible for the drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card!

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
