SQL Server 2014 receives a very new & important feature - Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using a xVelocity compression and a batch processing mode this type of indexes takes many different types of workload to a whole new level.
Dive deep into Clustered Columnstore Indexes structure and functionalities. See in action locking & blocking, as well as how dictionaries react on diferent types of data, and discover if the data type is right for your dictionaries.
Join me for an hour of playing with different ETL patterns by using Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using different Hardware might lead you to different conclusions, and the size of the workload is always the paramount of your performance.
Collecting your geographical information might be fun - or it might actually serve as an alibi, or even prove your innocence. Join this session for a hour of data exploration around favorite bars and coffee shops you check into on FourSquare.
This session talks about the new features for table partitioning in SQL Server 2014, such as Single Partition Online Rebuild, and of course - Incremental Statistics.

Previous Sessions
