Pre-Session Begins at 5:00PM – Introduction to AlwaysOn Availability Groups
Pre-Session Speaker: Adam Belebczuk
Pre-Session Abstract: One of the most talked about new features in Microsoft SQL Server is AlwaysOn Availability Groups. In this session, we’ll cover the pros and cons of using Availability Groups as well as the basics of how to set them up and take advantage of readable secondary replicas. If you want to improve the availability and performance of your applications and databases, are currently using Database Mirroring, or if you’re just curious about Availability Groups, then you won’t want to miss this session.
Topic: I’m a SQL Server Veteran, Why Should I Care About Hadoop?
Description: Many of us have had a long career as SQL Server database professionals and have watched the product mature and evolve over several release cycles from the mid-1990’s until now. In the late 2000’s an open source software product called Hadoop, used for processing extremely large data sets using clusters of compute servers, entered the game. Several years later Hadoop is still in a huge hype-cycle, but many organizations and businesses are just now beginning to understand what it is and how they can make use of it. Understanding often starts by asking the SQL developer or DBA, “Do we need Hadoop?” As a developer or DBA, you need to start by understanding what Hadoop is and how it adds value to a solution. In this session, we will discuss the overall Hadoop architecture and ecosystem, demo SQL-like functionality in a Hadoop product called Hive, demo a SQL Server and Hadoop integration, and discuss ways that businesses are using both platforms as part of a combined data solution.
