Heraflux-Logo-Color-SMyucca_groupMy company, Heraflux Technologies is proud to partner with Yucca Group to sponsor this year’s SQL Saturday Chicago, a free one-day event for SQL Server professionals. The event is being held at DeVry University in Addision, IL, on Saturday, April 26th. For more details and to get registered, go to http://sqlsaturday.com/291/eventhome.aspx.

I am fortunate enough to be presenting two sessions at this SQL Saturday. The first session at 10:30am in Room 116 is ‘SQL Server Virtualization 101‘, where database professionals can get a solid introduction to the fundamentals of virtualization – one of the most disruptive technologies to hit the datacenter in decades. The second session, a follow up session from the first, is being held at 2:45pm in Room 216, and is entitled ‘Squeezing Top Performance from your Virtualized SQL Server‘, where database administrators who currently manage virtualized SQL Servers can learn how to work with their systems administrators to get the most performance out of their databases.

In addition to the sessions on the day of SQL Saturday, I am also presenting a full day pre-conference training session next Friday, April 25, entitled ‘SQL Server Virtualization for DBAs‘. Data professionals will spend the day learning the in’s-and-out’s of the virtualization technologies that they are guaranteed to be exposed to in their organizations, where they will learn how they can leverage virtualization to improve the reliability, availability, and performance of their mission-critical systems. Register today for this exciting event, as seats are limited and going fast!
