Robert Davis - Case Study: Designing a Global Scal

RSVP: http://DataArch.SQLPass.org

Title: Case Study: Designing a Global Scaled-out Architecture Level: Intermediate How do you deliver a public-facing website on a global scale? To be truly competitive in a global market, you need to deliver a high performing website no matter what part of the world the user is in. Scaling out websites to multiple locations is easy, but it doesn’t really provide the performance required if the website has to get data from halfway around the world. This session will look at the challenges to scaling out the entire application to meet global performance requirements and how we addressed these challenges for an existing web application. Robert L Davis is a SQL Server 2008 Certified Master and an experienced Database Administrator, SQL Server evangelist, speaker, writer, and trainer. He has worked with SQL Server for more than 13 years, most recently as a Sr. Product Consultant and Chief SQL Server Evangelist for Idera Software. Prior to that he served as Program Manager for the SQL Server Certified Master Program at Microsoft Learning, and before that as a production DBA at Microsoft. Robert is currently working as an independent consultant at SQL DBA Master. He blogs at www.sqlsoldier.com and can be found on Twitter as @SQLSoldier.

Statement Execution and the Plan Cache

Sept 7, 2106, Noon CST

By Kimberly L. Tripp

Statement Execution and the Plan Cache

Kimberly will discuss the impact on caching / performance of different methods of statement execution. Briefly, she will also compare / contrast this with stored procedures. In the end, you’ll know the best way to request data so that stable requests are cached and unstable requests are not (giving you the most optimal performance).

Considerations for deploying SQL Server with hyperconverged infrastructure solutions

 

Nov 9th 2016 Noon CDT

 

 

Hyperconverged platforms, where compute, storage and virtualization are combined into a single appliance, are becoming a popular mode for deploying infrastructure to support SQL Server installations.  This session will discuss the benefits, pitfalls and best practices of running SQL Server with hyperconverged solutions, including details on performance, sizing, data protection and high availability.

Table Partitioning: Secret Weapon for Big Data Problems

Is big data starting to slow you down? Data growth putting your maintenance tasks in danger of not meeting your SLAs? Wish you could archive old data with minimal impact to your tables during the archive process or that you could eliminate most of the data in your tables when you query them? If so, it’s time you consider implementing table partitioning to help with general performance and reduce your window for completing maintenance tasks.

Come learn how table partitioning works and when it should be implemented. You’ll see how to initially configure partition functions and partition schemes to have a rock-solid partitioned table. And you’ll learn how to implement an automated sliding window to maintain your partitioned tables and ensure optimal performance.

§ Data Architecture underpins just about everything we do in IT. Without a clear understanding of how data is structured, there is no reliable way to derive meaning from it. Data Architecture drives the design and governance of data systems, and thus should be of interest to any data professional. Data Architecture provides the blue-prints that we all share, whether we be DBAs, data integration developers, database developers, data warehousing professionals, data presentation developers or client-side application developers persisting data for later retrieval.

The PASS Data Architecture Virtual Chapter will focus on data architecture concerns as they impact users, developers and DBAs on the Microsoft SQL Server platform. We want to make data architecture accessible to all data practitioners, and drive the point home that Data Architecture is a set of practices and a body of knowledge that overlaps almost all database professionals to some degree.
