  • Heading to Orlando for SQL Saturday again this year

    Last year, I attended SQL Saturday Orlando again after missing a few years (I did my first database design precon there a few years back). I love the way they run their event, and as speakers, we did some fun stuff like being the ones that served lunch to the attendees. This year, I wasn’t sure if I had a chance to go, because I had scheduled a ...

  • Speaking this week at #sqlsatChattanooga and for the PASS Performance Virtual Chapter

    The topic for both sessions will be: How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design and the following is the abstract: With SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has added a major new feature to help optimize OLTP database implementations by persisting your data primarily in RAM. Of course it isn't that simple, internally everything that uses this ...

  • Classic Music, Attractions, and Presentations: Presenting on Database Design at SQL Saturday Atlanta 2015

I love going to SQL ...

  • How Does the Cloud Change a Developer's Job?

    I've recently posted a blog on how cloud computing would change the Systems Architect’s role in an organization, another on how the cloud changes a Database Administrator's job, and the last post dealt with the Systems Administrator. In this post I'll cover the changes facing the Software Developer when using the cloud. The software ...

  • How Does the Cloud Change a Systems Administrator's Job?

    I recently posted a blog entry on how cloud computing would change the Systems Architect’s role in an organization, and another on how the cloud changes a database administrator's job. This time I'll cover a few of the changes the cloud brings for the Systems Administrator. The systems administrator shares some similarity with the database ...

  • How Does the Cloud Change a Database Administrator’s Job?

    I recently posted a blog entry on how cloud computing would change the Systems Architect’s role in an organization. In a way, the Systems Architect has the easiest transition to a new way of using computing technologies. In fact, that’s actually part of the job description. I mentioned that a Systems Architect has three primary ...

  • How Does the Cloud Change a Systems Architect’s Job?

    I know - I said I didn't like the ''cloud'' term, but my better-phrased ''Distributed Systems'' moniker just never took off like I had hoped. So I'll stick with the ''c'' word for now, at least until the search engines catch up with my more accurate term. I thought I might spend a little time on how the cloud affects the way we work - from ...

  • High Availability for IaaS, PaaS and SaaS in the Cloud

    Outages, natural disasters and unforeseen events have proved that even in a distributed architecture, you need to plan for High Availability (HA). In this entry I'll explain a few considerations for HA within Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). In a separate post I'll talk more about ...

  • Declarative Architectures in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

    I deal with computing architectures by first laying out requirements, and then laying in any constraints for it's success. Only then do I bring in computing elements to apply to the system. As an example, a requirement might be ''world-side availability'' and a constraint might be ''with less than 80ms response time and full HA'' or something ...
