IT/Dev Connections Wrapup

ITnDevConnections_logo_TylerOptimized_236x59Last week Heraflux had the pleasure of presenting at this year’s IT/Dev Connections conference at the ARIA Resort in Las Vegas. David Klee presented two sessions entitled “Business Continuity for Virtual SQL Servers” and “SQL Server Infrastructure Performance” during the week.

Thanks to all of the event attendees that came to our sessions! This is a great event, and if you have not considered IT/Dev Connections before, this conference is a must-visit. The variety of topics, from software development, data, professional development, and enterprise IT is quite unique and rewarding for organizations of all sizes. Connections is not small by any stretch of the imagination, but has sessions presented in a more intimate setting, rather than massive events such as Ignite, and you can spend time with the speakers, network with your peers, and do it all without feeling overwhelmed by the huge crowds.

Thanks everyone! Save the date for next year. It’s going to be held at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, CA, from October 23-26, 2017.


Heraflux at IT/Dev Connections This Week

ITnDevConnections_logo_TylerOptimized_236x59This is just a friendly reminder that Heraflux is speaking at this year’s IT/Dev Connections conference held at the ARIA Resort in Las Vegas this week!

The first session is to be held on Wednesday, October 12th, at 11:00am, and is titled “Business Continuity for Virtual SQL Servers“.

Session Abstract: Do your SQL Servers have a different high availability or disaster recovery strategy than the rest of the servers, and the differences cause some friction with the infrastructure admins? SQL Server provides many features for improving high availability and disaster recovery resiliency, and they continue to evolve and change with each release. However, do these strategies and features complement or conflict with the current infrastructure strategy? How do these layers work together to protect the business? What if you can augment (or possibly replace) a complex SQL Server BC solution with a simpler, but just as effective, solution using some of the virtualization features available in today’s virtualized environments? This session will discuss strategies for improving your SQL Server uptime while reducing the complexity of your overall SQL Server continuity strategy.

The second session is to be held on Thursday, October 13th, at 10:30am, and is titled “SQL Server Infrastructure Performance“.

Session Abstract: The compute infrastructure beneath your critical SQL Servers is just one layer in the application system stack, but if issues are rampant under your data, your database performance is guaranteed to suffer, and your end user application performance experience is sure to be poor. As a DBA, we are usually at the mercy of the groups managing this hidden layer, but it does not have to be this way. Learning more about these layers of the system stack – physical compute server, virtualization, storage, interconnects, and networking – will help you understand how the infrastructure responds to a query request, and will make you a stronger database professional. You can also indirectly (or even directly) measure the performance of these layers to gain critical insight into their peculiarities.

This conference is not one to miss! Contact us if you want to meet up at the event to talk tech!
