Welcome to fall. All of the local data groups continue to collaborate, with each of us taking turns hosting virtual the monthly meeting(s). The plan is one “evening” meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 4 PM PST, and a second meeting on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 12 PM PST.
This week we present Argenis Fernandez, a phenomenal speaker both in content and style. Don’t miss out! Go from thinking storage configs and performance are mystic arts not meant for mere mortals to understanding how they actually work.

So register now for Wednesday, October 13th @ 4pm. Register here.
In order to encourage questions during the presentation, we want people to use the raise hands option in Teams. Please be mindful of the other attendees!

4:15 – Presentation
Our wonderful sponsors provide gifts each month
In this session we will learn how SQL Server interacts with storage devices for the different operations that it performs. You will learn about the basic concepts of storage, PerfMon counters, and understand how storage metrics directly correlate with database performance.
An overview of storage stacks in virtualization and container/Kubernetes environments will be in the agenda as well.
We will also go over the different kinds of storage available for SQL Server, both on-premises and in the cloud.
