Development and the Importance of Containerizing

I’ve been at KSCOPE 2017 all week and it’s been a busy scheduled even with only two sessions.  Its just one of those conferences that has so much going on all the time that the days just speed by at 140MPH.

Virtualizing Big Data in the Cloud

I’m in sunny Phoenix this week at the Data Platforms 2017 Conference and looking forward to a break in the heat when I return to Colorado this evening.

As this event is for big data, I expected to present on how big data could benefit from virtualization, but was surprised to find that I didn’t have a lot of luck finding customers utilizing us for this reason, (yet).  As I’ve discussed in previous presentations, I was aware of what a “swiss army knife” virtualization is, resolving numerous issues, across a myriad of environments, yet often unidentified.

Insider View of a Delphix VDB Rewind

I love questions-  They give me something to write about that I don’t have to come up with from my experience or challenges…:)

So in my last post, Paul asked:

I am not sure what happens to the other changes which happened while the release was happening? Presumably they are also lost? Presumably the database has to go down while the data is reverted?

The Setup

In our scenario to answer this question, I’m going to perform the following on the VEmp_826 virtualized database:

Its All About the DevOps Roll of the Dice

Different combination in the game of tech create a winning roll of the dice and other times create a loss.  Better communication between teams can offer a better opportunity to deter from holes in development cycle tools, especially when DevOps is the solution you’re striving for.

SQL Saturday 588 – May 20 in NYC

I’m really excited about speaking at SQL Saturday #588 at the Microsoft office in Times Square, I’ll be discussing Accelerating TDM Using Data Virtualization.  This is my favorite topic, because for the 20+ years that I worked as a database administrator (DBA), I ran into the same challenges time and again.

The challenges of data volume.

Delivering Migration Projects on Time

I did a couple great sessions yesterday for the awesome Dallas Oracle User Group, (DOUG.)  It was the first time I did my thought leadership piece on Making Sense of the Cloud and it was a great talk, with some incredible questions from the DOUG attendees!

The Chicken Before the Egg of Cloud Migrations

For over a year I’ve been researching cloud migration best practices.  Consistently there was one red flag that trips me that I’m viewing recommended migration paths.  No matter what you read, just about all of them include the following high level steps:

Preparing an AzureEnvironment- Part I

Azure is the second most popular cloud platform to date, so it’s where Delphix naturally is going to support second on our road to the cloud.  As I start to work with the options for us deploying Delphix, there are complexities I need to educate myself on in Azure.

SQL Saturday – 25-March 2017 – Colorado Springs CO

I’m really excited about speaking at SQL Saturday on my favorite topic!

SQLSaturday is a free training event for Microsoft Data Platform professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server, Business Intelligence and Analytics.  I’m all for that!

At this event, I’ll be discussing Accelerating DevOps and TDM Using Data Virtualization.  This is my favorite topic, because for the 20 years that I worked as a DBA, I ran into the same roadblock time and again.  The roadblock of data volume.

“DevOps” is a conflation of parts of the words “development” and “operations”, and it represents the grass-roots movement to merge application development, application testing, and IT operations into one continuous stream.  All tasks from coding to testing to operations must be automated so that new features and fixes can be delivered on a continual flow.
