Event SQL Server 2017

27.03.2018 in Lausanne / 05.04.2018 in Zurich / 12.04.2018 in Basel

SQL Server, Linux and open source … who would have thought that we could use those words one day together? Nowadays companies are expecting a large choice of solutions and Microsoft addresses it with SQL Server 2017 available both on Windows, Linux, MacOS and docker containers.

Thanks to the strong work done on the former versions, SQL Server 2017 allows to stay fast on an automatically and adaptive way whereas performance matters and scalability of workload requirements remain in the focus.

Last but not least, cloud and AI are becoming key drivers to innovation. BI features are constantly modernizing and provide a great experience to developers and data scientists, who can explore and analyze data efficiently with a new generation of tools for example including Python, Graph databases, PowerBI Server, or SSIS Scale-out.

This event will present you new key features which, we believe, will help you driving innovation and business value which may benefit to your applications.


SQL Server is opening to a whole new world – Open Source and Linux

Presented by

  • David Barbarin, Senior Consultant and Technology Leader at dbi services

Open source is now part of the Microsoft strategy. Indeed, you may run SQL Server either on a physical or on a virtual machine, and since recently on the top of Windows and Linux operating systems as well. At the same time, DevOps and Microservices technologies emerge and seem to become an industry standard for the upcoming years where containerization is part of the new approach. However, high availability remains a main concern. In this session we will show you how Microsoft and SQL Server are addressing all these topics in the new open source world.

Stay fast and tuned with SQL Server 2017

Data management system or databases, are becoming increasingly critical elements of the information system. At the same time, these systems aim at satisfying performance expectations and address potential Quality-of-Service violations that heavily rely on performance predictability. Based on the strong work done on SQL Server 2016 as well as customer’s feedbacks, we will show you how SQL Server 2017 makes a step forward regarding the performance area by providing a new automatically and adaptively performance dimension through both Query Processing and Automatic Tuning capabilities in order to scale with the new workload requirements.
