I am thrilled to announce the launch of a new education initiative called SQLibrium. For years, I’ve traveled the world educating technical audiences on deep-dive topics around how data and infrastructure / cloud technologies converge. With the pandemic, the in-person events have changed for now, but the need to make all of the layers at and underneath the database work to your advantage hasn’t changed one bit. In fact, I would argue it’s even more critical now than ever to look for cost savings, and performance improvements in all layers of the system stack. Today I am launching my first on-demand course called the SQL Server on VMware Accelerator. 

This course is designed to accelerate your knowledge and provide over two decades of tips, tricks, and architectural guidance on how to get the most performance and availability out of your SQL Server on VMware deployments, all while looking for cost reduction opportunities. This 8.5 hour full-stack master class ramps you up on everything you need to know about all of the layers underneath the database, including:

  • Enterprise storage
  • Networking & interconnects
  • Physical server
  • Hypervisor & hypervisor host cluster
  • SQL Server VM construction
  • Operating-system tuning, including both Windows Server & Linux
  • SQL Server instance properties
  • SQL Server database distribution
  • Holistic performance tuning of all the layers together
  • High availability-specific tuning

As a technologist in the field for over twenty years, working with thousands of environments on all the leading infrastructure products and cloud platforms, I’ve put in over 400 hours to create the ultimate step-by-step course for you!

I look forward to you joining me on this technical journey! For more information, please go to sqlibrium.com to learn more!
