Hosted by Carlos L Chacon, the SQL Data Partners Podcast focuses on Microsoft data platform related topics mixed with a sprinkling of professional development. Carlos and guests discuss new and familiar features and ideas and how you might apply them in your environments. Visit our website for episode show notes at sqldatapartners.com/podcast and leave a comment if you have a topic you think we should discuss. We’ll see YOU on the SQL Trail.
The Standup Meeting
Carlos, Kevin, and Eugene reconnect after some time away with a new streaming time. Long form conversation on a single topic is also the place we want to get back to in our podcast.
With both Kevin and Eugene busy this week, Carlos went solo to share a few changes to the podcast, including the Twitch livestream moving to Tuesday, how you can support the podcast, and podcast episodes going back to being published every other Wednesday. If you have a subject that you’d like to chat about on the podcast with us, we’d love to schedule a time with you…go to sqldatapartners.com/podcast to sign up.
Azure Arc-enabled Data Services
Azure Arc-enabled data services provide powerful capabilities to deploy and manage local, on-premises, and hybrid cloud data resources using the same centralized management and tooling you get from the Azure cloud. Since Eugene suggested our previous attempt at Azure Arc was insufficient, we invited Ben Weissman and Anthony Nocentino, authors of the book Azure Arc-Enabled Data Services Revealed, to the podcast to discuss how this technology came about and why the future looks very exciting.
SQL Trail March 2021 Retrospective
Virtual conferences are just not the same as the conferences we are used to, but we’re still determined to provide a good learning and networking environment for our friends. We very much miss having conferences in person and look forward to that happening again. In the meantime, we have discovered Airmeet and we had a great event: our first of the year. Carlos and Kevin sit down and dissect the good, the bad and the indifferent that was SQL Trail March 2021.
Microsoft Ignite Recap
As we prepare for SQL Trail on March 18th, we peek back at Microsoft Ignite and review the announcements made there—filtering out the pieces our compañeros will enjoy hearing about. Did we miss something you think we should talk about? Let us know!
SQL Server Inventory
How do you document your SQL Server environments? I can remember walking through Brent Ozar’s takeover script back in the day and how cumbersome it was to put all that information together. We have a few more options available to us now. In this episode, we discuss a listener question along with some options for doing server inventories. SQL Trail is coming on March 18th. Will we see you there?
Very informative and funny - makes for great teaching! Thanks guys
I am downloading all episodes
Thank you Carlos & team. I subscribed and started listening podcast few months back; listen to new and old ones. Podcasts have helped me better understand many topics e.g. index, isolation, statistics, locking-blocking and many new features like - always encrypted, power bi, azure database etc.
Thank you !!
