Where in the World is Bob?

Our Bob Pusateri has been quite busy lately with SQL Server technical talks, and we wanted to highlight some of the in-person events that he’s spoken at.

We love presenting for local technical user groups. Back in August, Bob spoke at the Chicago SQL Server Users Group on August 9th. This session was his first session highlighting Microsoft’s global scale database – Cosmos DB – called “Select Stars: A SQL Server DBA’s Introduction to Azure Cosmos DB.” Bob also presented this session for the Chicago Suburban SQL Server Users Group on September 18th.

We are also proud to speak at a number of SQL Saturdays. Bob spoke at the SQL Saturday in Oslo Norway on September 1st! Bob presented this Cosmos DB session at this event. His slides are available for you to download.

Bob also presented at the SQL Saturday in Boston MA on September 22nd. This session was called “Supercharging Backups and Restores for Fun and Profit“, and his slides are available for you to download.

Bob will be presenting at the Red-Gate SQL in the City Summit in Chicago on October 26th. This session is called “Maximize Availability and More with SQL Server Estate Monitoring“.

Bob is also presenting at this year’s PASS Summit in Seattle during the week of November 6th. He is presenting two sessions – the Cosmos DB introductory session, and “SSMS & T-SQL Tricks: Working Smarter, Not Harder“. This conference is world-class and we want to see you there with us!

Welcoming the Year 2018

On behalf of the Heraflux Technologies team, we want to wish you a very happy new year! Twenty-seventeen has been an incredible and exciting year for us and our customers. We had an absolute blast traveling and speaking at a number of different events in 2017, including SQL Nexus, Pure Accelerate, VMworld (USA and EMEA), P21 Connect, PASS Summit, and too many SQL Saturdays and SQL Server User Groups to mention.

Our journey is just beginning. The world continues to change and evolve, especially with the seismic shift from on-prem computing to cloud-based computing, and as it changes, so do we. We at Heraflux have set our sights on a new chapter of innovation for 2018, so stay tuned for some exciting announcements over the next few months!
