SQL Server 2016 is leading a movement in the database industry to increase performance and scalability by using in-memory technologies. In this webcast we’ll take a deep dive into SQL Server 2016’s In-Memory OLTP and in-memory Columnstore index. You’ll hear the driving factors for in-memory adoption and the different ways SQL Server 2016 uses in-memory technologies. We will take a close look at HPE´s high-performing, mission-critical Superdome X server, offering up to 24TB of memory in a single system, and how SQL Server environments benefit from being deployed in this large scale-up platform.

You’ll understand how the Columnstore index is different from standard SQL Server B-tree indexes and the new features SQL Server 2016 brings to it. You will learn how to:

  • Migrate tables and stored procedures to use In-memory OLTP
  • Use the Columnstore index to accelerate your data warehouse queries
  • Combine the Columnstore Indexes with In-Memory OLTP tables and reap the benefits of real-time operational analytics
