I missed South America and Antarctica on this “tour”, but I hit the other continents.  I was part of a global team assembled from Microsoft and DB Best to train partners on how to migrate customers ...

  • Use TPC Database Benchmarks to Save Money

    Last month, I began a series of articles describing database application benchmarking. In the first article, I told you about different ways that you can construct your own database application benchmark. However, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. The Transaction Processing Council (www.tpc.org) has already created a large number of ...

In this article published in my monthly column at Database Trends & Applications magazine, I'll give you a brief introduction to TPC benchmarks and, ...

  • SQL vs. Oracle Live Debate (AKA Smackdown!)

    A few years ago I was speaking at a conference in Raleigh, NC where Ted Neward and I found a fun way to promote a Java vs. .NET debate that was planned one evening. We stood in the middle of a crowd during one of the breaks and starting “arguing” about Java vs. .NET with one another. Our voice levels quickly raised and we ended it by slapping each ...

  • Managing Complex DB Environments

    Check out the new white paper “Key Methods for Managing Complex DB Environments” at Quest.com. Heterogeneous database management hassles used to be much less common than today. When I first started at Quest nearly ten years ago, I'd put forward that on 15-20% of my big customers regularly managed more than one major database platform. (That ...

  • SQL Server Migration Roll-Up

    There are so many great tools out there for data professionals using Microsoft SQL Server.  I really like to see all of these great tools made free to the public.  On the other hand, I'm bummed that the tools are cast about in a very decentralized fashion. If you haven't done migrations before, you might want to start with these ...

  • Adventures in the Land of CloudDB/NoSQL/NoAcid

    Cloud, Bunny, or CloudBunny? Last year, some of my friends from Quest Software attended Hadoop World in New York. In 2009, I never would've guessed that Quest would be there with products, community initiatives, as a major sponsor and with presenters? There were just under 1,000 attendees who weren’t the typical devheads and geekasaurs ...

  • Are you replacing Temp Tables with Snapshot Isolation?

    My office is a cross-platform shop with both Oracle 10g and SQL Server 2000/5/8. Lately we've started doing some cross-training, so that all the DBAs, the theory at least, could function on either platform. The Oracle guys, I'm afraid, are way out ahead of me in this regard. In my defense, though, I have to manage more than 100 servers to their ...
