SSWUG.org posted a new show on the top 10 SQL Server trends.
Here’s my take on the most significant trends/events for SQL Server
1 - The loss of Jim Gray
2 - The debate over Beyond Relational / Entity Framework / future role of the database and the database developer, and what to do with non-traditional data types and objects?
3 - Katmai - Declarative Management Framework – completely changes how the enterprise DBA manages SQL Server. Those DBAs who master DMF will pwn those who do not.
4 - Multi-core 64x CPUs - 32-bit is so last century.
5 - Solid State Drives and what they will mean for both performance and for HA.
6 - Incredible BI growth in the marketplace.
