Accelerate SQL Server 2016 to the max: lessons learned from customer engagements

The SQLCAT team worked with several customers as part of the Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Preview Program. Hear about how those customers were able to target specific bottlenecks and overcome them to far exceed their performance and scalability targets with SQL Server 2016. Deriving from actual customer engagements, we detail the most common scenarios, “tools of the trade,” and most importantly the “secret sauce” used in those situations.

Make it real with Always Encrypted, Stretch Database and Temporal Tables

So you’ve heard you can keep as much data as you want indefinitely with minimal effort and cost. You’ve also discovered you can secure you data with strong cryptography at all times. You even learned about how to time travel with your data. So how exactly do you design, deploy and manage a database application that can do all that without an army of experts? Find out from the crew that built Always Encrypted, Stretch Database and Temporal Table so you can be that expert. We also share recommended practices, known limitations and workarounds. This session is not about flashy demos; it focuses on practical implementation details you can use when you get back.

See how Microsoft SQL Server 2016 enables you to run analytic queries on in-memory and disk-based OLTP tables with minimal impact on business critical OLTP workloads, requiring no application changes. This session covers various configurations and best practices for achieving significant performance gains with Operational Analytics.
