A new week and a new SQL MCM announce:
Derek Wilson, Senior Premier Field Engineer, Microsoft. Derek has over a decade of experience managing relational database systems. He is currently a transactional Premier Field Engineer (PFE) who provides onsite support for Microsoft Premier customers. Derek travels around the U.S. (and occasionally the world) to resolve some of the most technically and politically challenging customer issues. Derek’s areas of technical expertise include SQL Server engine performance tuning, troubleshooting, and virtualization (Hyper-V specifically, but has experience with VMware environments as well).
I met Derek back in 2009 and he was one of those guys with significant technical talent – but totally humble about it. With that combination of traits, it isn’t a surprise that customers love working with him. We’re fortunate to have him in the SQL MCM community now.
