The goal of the DBA Virtual Group is to provide a PASS community for the DBA. It provides a forum for open discussion and education on issues that face SQL Server database administrators.

A Few of My Favorite SQL Server 2016 Things

Microsoft has asked the Virtual Chapters to present some material they prepared about SQL Server 2016 as part of the product launch. The feature set is far too large to cover in our hour-long time spot, so I have selected a few of my favorite features. I’ll talk about enhancements in In-memory OLTP, the Query Store and Row-level locking. If time permits, I’ll also cover the new Temporal data feature.
