Windows SIG: Understanding SQLOS




    The Windows SIG: Understanding SQLOS

    Join us at the Windows SIG meeting on March 26 at the Microsoft Silicon Valley campus in Mountain View.  Food and drinks will be served starting at 6:30 PM.  Meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.  Please RSVP to WindowsSIG@SDForum.org so we can order the appropriate quantity.

    The topic of our meeting is SQLOS.  Created for SQL Server 2005, SQLOS is a new platform layer that contains features to help exploit concurrency, partitioning and locality to their full degree.  SQLOS is a user mode operating system that leverages a hierarchical design similar to the hardware on which it runs.  This presentation will discuss the motivation for developing SQLOS, including the major abstraction techniques for thread and memory management.  This is a "must attend" session if you want to understand the intricacies of SQL Server.

    Our presenter, Phil Hummel, is a Technology Architect at the Microsoft Technology Center in Mountain View, CA.  Phil conducts technology discussions and Proof-of-Concept engagements with Microsoft customers and partners on a wide range of topics related to the SQL Server product line.

    Note:  This event is free to SDForum members.  Non-SDForum members can either pay $15 at the door or join SDForum as a member for 12 months for $125.
