Description

Doors at 5 pm

Pizza and SQL Lightning Talk: 5:30 PM:

SQL Server With XtremIO - with Tal Gernier from EMC This session provide a quick review into XtremIO all-flash technologies for SQL Server. We begin with looking at the XtremIO features that are unique for SQL Server deployments, going over test some results we are seeing in the lab with different feature implementations and we will wrap up with XtremIO iCDM (Integrated Copy Data Management) that will show how we solve the copies data sprawl and copies lifecycle management including full self-provision by DBA’s without storage admins intervention.


Main Event: 6:00 pm: Revenge: The SQL (Duration: 75 minutes)

Pop quiz DBA: Your developers are running rampant in production. Logic, reason, and threats have all failed. You're on the edge. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

Hint: You attend Revenge: The SQL!

This session will show you how to "correct" all those bad practices. Everyone logging in as sa? Running huge cursors? Using SELECT * and ad-hoc SQL? Stop them dead, without actually killing them. Ever dropped a table, or database, or WHERE clause? You can prevent that! And if you’re tired of folks ignoring your naming conventions, make them behave with Unicode…and take your revenge!

Revenge: The SQL! is fun and educational and may even have some practical use, but you’ll want to attend simply to indulge your Dark Side. Revenge: The SQL! assumes no liability and is not available in all 50 states. Do not taunt Revenge: The SQL! or Happy Fun Ball.



Rob Volk is a SQL Server DBA in the Metro Atlanta area since 2001. An MCSA & MCITP, he also moderates and answers the forums on SQLTeam.com. While an old-time cranky DBA, he no longer considers "business intelligence" an oxymoron or "the cloud" as merely atmospheric moisture, and is delightedly dipping his toes into both of these new oceans, and loves to do things in new and and unusual ways.
