My company, Heraflux Technologies, is proud to announce a new ebook as part of our joint partnership with Pure Storage! This ebook, entitled Overcoming SQL Server Storage Challenges, discusses the current state of infrastructure technologies and how it interacts and impacts the performance of Microsoft’s flagship database engine SQL Server. Arguably, storage has historically been the slowest part of the infrastructure stack underneath the database, so much so that the core database engine makes some assumptions that it will always be the case. Modern CPUs, memory, and even the network are much less a bottleneck than administrators commonly realize. Even modern SQL Server in-memory features, such as in-memory OLTP and columnstore indexes, are heavily dependent on the performance of the storage underneath them.

Learn more about how SQL Server and the enterprise storage your data rests on complement and contradict each other in this exciting new ebook authored for Pure Storage! Download this exciting PDF today!

Recently I contributed my thoughts in a new ebook from ScaleArc called “Industry Perspectives: Upgrading to Modern SQL“. Modernizing the datacenter is an ongoing struggle for those of us in the operational trenches, and a number of us in the industry contributed our thoughts to ScaleArc to help administrators sift through the options and learn how to make these upgrades easier. It’s a great read, and learning from the great contributors is fun! Check it out!

SQL-GG-Side-CoverI’m pleased to announce the general availability of a new free ebook collaboration with James Green from ActualTech Media called “Modern Storage Strategies for SQL Server“.  Storage is so vitally important to SQL Server performance, but the intricacies of one side’s administrators are rarely known by the other. My goal for this ebook was to set out to educate SQL Server professionals on how the storage underneath their data actually operates, how to work with the storage administrators on topics specific to SQL Server, and show them how they can make the most of it to improve the performance and availability of their databases.

In This Gorilla Guide You’ll Learn:

  • The basics of SQL Server and database workload characteristics
  • Key considerations for storage architecture with regard to SQL Server
  • Useful tips for protecting SQL Server from disasters
  • Best practices for leveraging flash storage for SQL Server
  • How to modernize SQL Server by taking advantage of the latest updates to the platform
