Eddie Wuerch
Upgrade, Migrate, or Change With Absolute Confidence!

Do you have performance or scale concerns about upgrading to SQL 2016, moving to Azure, or making other big changes to your systems? The New MS DEA tool provides detailed real-world analysis of your workloads in a 'before' and 'after' setting with minimal effort. You can accurately measure what effects the new Cardinality Estimator brings to your systems, compare your on-prem to various Azure or AWS machine and storage sizes, determine the best use of NVMe, validate your dynamic SQL that Upgrade Advisor cannot, and much more. The result is a detailed report including times, differences, and execution plans, broken down by each discreet call. This session details and demonstrates using this tool for a variety of scenarios such as those above and more like measuring the true full-system impact of implementing columnstore and in-memory table operations. Attend this session and you will be able to eliminate all uncertainty from otherwise ‘try-and-hope’ projects. Bonus: we'll automate it.

With 20 years as a SQL Server specialist in a much-longer IT career, Microsoft Certified Master Eddie Wuerch spends his days at the Salesforce Marketing Cloud focusing on performance, scale, and uptime for the massive SQL Server backend. These SQL Servers churn billions of transactions daily against trillions of rows of data in a 24x7 continuously-available online system accessed by millions worldwide every day.
