Meeting 6 of 2017

This months meeting is going to be a remote presentation instead of a pre-recorded session and will be on the topic:

Hardware 201: Selecting and Sizing Database Hardware for OLTP Performance
by the speaker Glenn Berry.
The abstract is:
The foundation of database performance is the underlying server hardware and storage subsystem. Even the best designed and optimized database application can be crippled by an inadequate hardware and storage infrastructure. Recent advances in new processors and chipsets, along with improvements in magnetic and SSD storage have dramatically changed the evaluation and selection process compared to the past. Many database professionals struggle to keep up with new technology and often simply let someone else make their hardware selection and sizing decisions. Unfortunately, the DBA usually gets the blame for any performance issues that crop up later. Don't let this happen to you! This session covers current and upcoming hardware from Intel and gives you the tools and resources to make better hardware selection decisions to support SQL Server OLTP workloads.

I hope you can all make it.
