SS2014 In-Memory Tables: Formula 1 Performance Unleashed!

10900 Stonelake Blvd. Suite 225 - Microsoft Office
Austin, Texas 78759
Time: 18:00 - 20:00

Title: SS2014 In-Memory Tables: Formula 1 Performance Unleashed!
by: Mike Byrd

Summary: Query performance is what it is all about. SQL Server 2014 now has the new in-memory functionality that takes a completely different approach to data access and manipulation. Google “In-Memory Tables” and you’ll get a myriad of results from white papers, blogs, webinars, etc. This session will consolidate the relevant information from all these sources so the production DBA/Developer will be able to understand, create, use, maintain, and trouble-shoot in-memory table functionality. This session will also examine several demo scripts showing performance gains using the in-memory tables over equivalent disk based tables.
