  • Configure and use Apache Zeppelin with SQL Server: the Basics

    In the previous post I’ve shown how to download and run Apache Zeppelin 0.6.2 for SQL Server, using Docker to simplify the installation procedure. It’s now time to start to use the fantastic Apache Zeppelin to connect to SQL Server and run some queries. This version specifically created for SQL Server, already comes with a predefined and almost ...

  • Run Apache Zeppelin 0.6.2 for SQL Server

    As promised in my last post here is the first post that aim to show how to use Apache Zeppelin with SQL Server. First thing first: installation. Or maybe not. The first thing to do, usually, is installing the product. Since we’re talking Java here, things may get a little bit long and complex if, like me, you’re more a .NET guy. Even worse if ...

  • Azure Functions to Schedule SQL Azure operations

    One of the things that I miss a lot when working on SQL Azure is the ability to schedule jobs, something that one normally does via SQL Server Agent when running on premises. To execute scheduled task, on Azure, Microsoft recommends to use Azure Automation. While this is surely one way of solving the problem, I find it a little bit too complex ...

  • Azure SQL Database DTU Calculator

    One of the most common questions when you start to use SQL Azure is related to the choice of the level of service needed for your needs. On the cloud every wasted resource is a tangible additional cost, so it is good to chose the best service level the fits your needs, no more and no less. You can always scale it up later if needed. The ...

  • Changing the BI architecture. From Batch to Real-time, from Bulk Load to Message Processing

    In a world of Microservices, CQRS and Event Sourcing is more and more common to have the requirement that the BI/BA solution you’re developing is able to deal with incoming information (more precisely, messages and events) in almost real time. It’s actually a good exercise to try to understand how you can turn your “classic” batch-based solution ...

  • Basic Availability Groups in SQL Server 2016

    Since SQL Server 2012, Database Mirroring (DBM) has been a deprecated feature meaning that it will be eventually removed in a future version of SQL Server.  It is still available in SQL Server 2016.  One of the best things about DBM is that it was a limited feature in Standard Edition since SQL Server 2005. The AG ...

  • Dragged Kicking and Screaming into the Clouds

    When I first heard about the cloud I rolled my eyes. This will never take, it sounds very much like the mainframes we came to know and hate (my first database project was killing a mainframe that was costing our non-profit organization $15000 a month, which as a non-profit was simply horrible.) Even four years ago when I was writing "Pro SQL ...

  • New Article: Dynamic Data Masking in SQL Server 2016 and Azure SQL DB

    My latest article on a new feature (Dynamic Data Masking) coming to SQL Server 2016 and Azure is now available. Dynamic Data Masking essentially displays characters instead of real data to non-privileged users.  The data is not stored as a masked values.  As with anything, there are pros and cons with this approach.  It is ...
