Honeybee Swarms

  • Editorial

I love honeybees. This will be my seventh year as an amateur beekeeper, and aside from family or data, there are few other topics that I could easily spend an afternoon talking to you about. They’re amazing creatures. This past winter I had to move my beehives temporarily to the apiary of a friend. With […]

There's No Free Lunch with Open-source Software

  • Editorial

As a member of the PostgreSQL open-source community, I have been following the recent license change by Redis Labes on March 20, 2024.

The […]

And within my community of developers and database folks, I’ve seen pictures and posts of many more. As I’ve said a few times in previous editorials, […]

The Voice of the Customer

  • Editorial

This week I had the opportunity to join many of the U.S.-based Redgaters in Austin to talk about 2024 plans, hear from the product teams, and have some much-needed fellowship. One thing was particularly clear as I listened to various leaders and product managers – the customer drives everything we do. And I have to […]

A Thrill of Hope

  • Editorial

I realize that this isn’t the last Database Weekly editorial of the year – that honor is reserved for Louis Davidson next week. 😊 However, as we approach the end of the year and various holiday celebrations, one of my favorite Christmas carols has been of particular encouragement to me recently. 2023 hasn’t gone exactly […]

Last Saturday, September 23, was the first day of Fall. Regardless of how much has happened and changed over the last three and a half years, time keeps marching forward. And yet, there's exciting familiarity every time I see November approaching because I know something special is about to happen for those of us in […]

Question of the Day

Implementing Change Data Capture

I have a complex environment that uses quite a few SQL Server 2022 servers. We have a powerful SQL Server running Enterprise that hosts most of our transaction data. However, there are remote locations that run Standard, Web, Express, and Express with Advanced Services editions for local collection of data before the data is transferred to our central Enterprise Edition server. We are considering using Change Data Capture (CDC) to lower the amount of data we transfer from clients. Which editions can we implement this feature on?
