Martin Wild of Quest Software will lift the lid on SQL Server on Linux. He will explore the mechanics to deploy SQL Server on Linux, what is and is not in the current Linux build and share some of quirks, insights and observations on setup and configuration. Once the stage is set, Martin will cover tuning and performance on Linux and bring you through some new DMVs for Linux monitoring. He will then compare the plans produced on Linux vs. Windows for consistency… or not! To round off the session get ready for a side by side benchmark session of workloads running on Windows and Linux. It’s sure to be an informative lid lifting! Come see what’s inside.

As this is a vendor session he will round off with a [brief] segment on Quest tools including monitoring and diagnostics and some cool free tuning tools.
