Next Meeting




Maximizing Performance of Persistent Memory in SQL Server 2019


In this session, we will cover how to get the most out of Persistent Memory (PMEM) (sometimes referred to as Storage Class Memory (SCM)), how it can benefit Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) like Azure Stack HCI (formerly Storage Spaces Direct or S2D), Nutanix and VMWare vSAN. We will cover a use case for Standard Edition using Columnstore and one eliminating Page latch contention on Enterprise Edition.

No prior knowledge of PMEM is assumed, but a basic understanding of SQL Server I/O will help.
