Speaker

7:00 PM Ray BarleyTitle - Introduction to SQL Server 2014 In-Memory Optimized Tables (formerly “Hekaton”)
 
Abstract - This session will cover the benefits of Hekaton, why developers and DBAs would want to use Hekaton, and the different options for creating Hekaton tables.

Hekaton is Microsoft's code word for their new OLTP in-memory, optimized data processing option for frequently-used tables in SQL Server 2014. In certain instances, Hekaton can yield performance gains of over 10x. This session will cover the benefits of Hekaton, why developers and DBAs would want to use Hekaton, and the different options for creating Hekaton tables. We'll also look at the native-code stored procedure optimizations when using Hekaton. Additionally, this session will show the range and limitations of Hekaton and how it differs from traditional SQL Server tables (such as transaction handling). Along the way, the session will have several code demonstrations where we'll look at performance benchmarks. If you've heard about Hekaton and in-memory optimizations and terms such as 'latch and lock free structures' and wondered what it all means, this session is for you!

Speaker - Kevin Goff, SQL Server MVP

Baltimore SQL Server Users Group History


The BSSUG was started in the days before SQL Server 7.0, back in 1999, by Raymond Barley.  The group has met in a few different places and been co-lead by a few different individuals, but the group has always been in the BWI-Columbia area.  We are a constantly growing group and always interested in meeting new members.  We are a member of the Capital PC Users Group and a SQL PASS official chapter.
