Online Course:SQL Server 2014 In-Memory OLTP


Opens September 12th, 2014 and Closes After October 11th, 2014

Kalen Delaney, course instructor and celebrated author of SQL Server 2012 Internals, will tell you all about how SQL Server 2014’s In-Memory OLTP works.

In-Memory OLTP (Codename “Hekaton”) is a completely new way of managing your SQL Server data, allowing incredible performance improvements. You can choose some or all of your critical tables to be stored completely in memory, all the time, so there is no cost for physical IO’s. In addition, these memory-optimized tables are completely lock-free and latch-free, providing additional performance benefits. Finally, you can choose to contain your application code in natively compiled procedures to avoid any query interpretation during execution, which adds additional cost savings. Current In-Memory OLTP users are seeing up to a 30-fold performance increase for their OLTP workloads.

The target audience for this class is administrators, developers or IT professionals who have experience with a recent version of SQL Server.
