The Future of In-Memory OLTP?

Niko Neugebauer has some speculation regarding In-Memory OLTP:

In SQL Server 2019 without that much deserved fanfare (for me at least), Microsoft has released a couple of improvements that made me think about the current status (was apparently almost dead) and the future of the In-Memory OLTP technology, that was launched in the year 2014, and besides significant improvements in SQL Server 2016 looked pretty much abandoned since. 

This is a perfect example of an excellent idea halfway implemented. There’s a lot of potential here, but enough pieces are missing that it’s hard to recommend using it outside of specialized scenarios. And that’s a shame given the potential.

Creating a SQL Managed Instance

Jess Pomfret takes us through creation of a SQL Managed Instance:

I’ve been thinking about the cloud a lot lately, and I feel it’s an area that I would benefit from learning more about. I’ve attended a couple of presentations on SQL Managed Instances and have read enough to be dangerous (or accidentally spend a lot of money, one of my biggest fears when working in the cloud). However, I always find I learn best and really get to understanding a topic by building something.

This post will be the first in at least a two part series on SQL Managed Instances (MI). My goal in this post is just to deploy an MI and have it ready to use for my next post.

Read on for the step-by-step instructions.

SQL Server 2019 Now Available

Asad Khan announces the general availability of SQL Server 2019:

As you saw from our launch announcement earlier today, over a year ago at Microsoft Ignite we announced our first preview of SQL Server 2019 and today our latest release is now generally available.

You have told us that in today’s demanding world of massive data, wide variety of data sources, and expectations of near real-time application and query performance you need more than just a database engine. You need a modern data platform.

If you’re an early adopter, note that there is a patch for it already.
