    Just a reminder that I will be speaking at the SF UG SQL Server User Group on Sep 12.  Here is a link with all of the details.  If you are in the area, It would be great to see you!

  • Comparing Standard Editions of SQL Server

    Recently, I've been speaking with customers about upgrading SQL Server.  At times, some customers have a lot of Standard Edition  SQL Server 2005 / 2008 / 2008R2 in their organization and they want to see the features they get when upgrading to SQL Server 2012.  Last week, I sent out some tweets to the #sqlhelp hashtag to see if ...

  • Rick Review: SQLTeach - SQL345 - 10-Mar-2010 - Kimberly Tripp

    SQLTeach (Part of the DevTeach Conferences in Canada) has enjoyed success for many years.  I enjoyed the opportunity to speak at and attend SQLTeach at various times over the years.  Since SQLTeach is part of DevTeach, the ''feel'' of the event is very different from PASS or SQLRally or even a SQL Saturday where SQL is the primary ...

  • SQL Server 2000 Still Strong, but Diminishing

    I presented a webcast on Wednesday on SQL Server Consolidation.  As with many of my sessions (both physical and virtual), I like to ask several questions.  This is NOT scientific, but it is anecdotal. Poll Question #1:  Do you have SQL Server 2000 STILL running in production in your organization today?  YES = 70%, NO = 27%, ...

  • Turning the corner on Upgrading from SQL Server 2000

    Last month, I spoke at a SQL Server Firestarter event in Charlotte.  With just about every session that I speak at or webcast that I do since 2006, I always ask for a show of hands on two questions.  The first is ''How many people here are running SQL Server 2000 in production?'', and the follow-up question that I ask is ''How many ...

  • Updated Support Policy for SQL Server on VMs

    As virtualization grows stronger in the marketplace, the question of SQL Server performance and support on Virtual Machines appears more often.  Bob Ward has a great post here.  Enjoy!

  • Recent Mags

    I get several more ''generic'' IT mags sent to my home.  I usually get them in an attempt to keep up with what is going on in the outside world.  Typically, I look at the lead story and find a nugget or two in the rest. In my recent issue of TechNet magazine, the cover story is on how to Tune up your database by Paul Randall.  He ...

  • Risky Business

    Whenever I do a webcast or presentation, I always ask the audience to indicate where their organization is in relation to running SQL Server 2000 or running SQL 2005.  Recently, in an audience of about 40 people, more than half of the audience still had more than 50% of their production servers running SQL Server 2000.  One of the ...

  • Some things don't change - DB Snapshots & Backups of Snapshots

    Again, I wanted to blog about something that still does not change between 2005 and 2008. At a recent conference, there were some great questions/ideas that should make it to Connect if they haven't already. When DB Snapshots were first introduced, one of the questions that I always heard was ''Can I perform a Backup on the ...

  • In case you did not hear, PASS Call for Speakers is now open!

    In the latest PASS Community Connector, there is a call for Speakers for this year's summit in Seattle in November.  If you have never been to Seattle in November, it really makes you want to learn more about SQL Server in the breakout sessions. ;-)   But seriously, it is a great venue to meet other SQL Server professionals and ...
