Datavail Gears Up For SQL Pass Summit 2013

By | In Blog, SQL Server | October 14th, 2013


Three of our best and brightest SQL consultants will be in attendance for this year’s SQL PASS Summit and the schedule looks like it will be a lively event. There’s a lot to look forward to during this year’s summit including the vast number of in-depth sessions and virtually unlimited opportunity to network.

Our consultants are also looking forward to the summit and some of their top interests are pretty specific. Here’s a rundown of what Datavail SQL consultants Adam Durr, Neal Pawlowski and Bill Mitalski are looking forward to most this week.

“Meeting with my peers and seeing who, what and where they work/what their challenges are…” Bill Mitalski

“The presentations – Always ON in SQL SERVER 2014, Optimizing SQL SERVER performance in a Virtual Environment, Under the Covers of Hadoop on Windows… and more.” Bill Mitalski

“Getting to hang out with a lot of the DBA rock stars out there. SQL Server is a great community.” Adam Durr

“There are some great sessions this year. One of the sessions that I am looking forward to is Jonathan Kehayias (@sqlpoolboy) called ‘SQL Server Archaeology: Dig into the Past with system health.’ As a DBA with a lot of customers, it can be common to be asked to troubleshoot a problem that no longer exists on the server. Normally this is difficult to do. In SQL Server 2012 this has been made a lot easier, and I hope to learn more about it during his session.” Adam Durr
