Ok, it kills me to admit this as a devoted and successful DIY guy, but when it comes to using Docker for your day-job, you probably need some good old-fashioned instructor led training to become professionally competent. Yes, for the first time in a long time I have run into a technology platform where structured classroom guidance from "the source" is not just helpful, it appears to be critically important for software professionals.

How to talk to my boss about Docker

on 9/21/17 9:59 AM By | Mark Panthofer | 0 Comments | Executive Insights DevOps Docker
Since my last blog post on enterprise containers, I have been getting requests to help answer "the why Docker" question, where technologist are trying to educate their executive management.  While there is no shortage of information available, I ran across this eBook from Docker that frames up the Docker business case very well. It also uses a real case study to back it up.

Are Enterprise Containers for Real? VMware, Pivotal and Google vote yes.

on 9/1/17 2:13 PM By | Mark Panthofer | 0 Comments | Docker
If you haven't been paying attention to software containers and Docker, you might want to start now. Based on the new strategic partnership announced by Google, VMware and Pivotal called Pivotal Container Service (PKS - that's not a typo), it would appear the enterprise container market is for real. In fact many IT insiders consider the potential impact of software containers on IT to be along the same scale as server virtualization.

SQL Server 2016 Test Drive: Columnstore Indexes, In-Memory Tables and Indexed Views

on 4/5/17 11:43 AM By | Mike Vogt | 0 Comments | SQL Server
Part 1 of 3 Introduction I’ve been getting re-acquainted with SQL Server 2016 after a very long hiatus (read 7.0).  While I’ve used SQL Server on many projects throughout the years, I’ve tended towards Oracle, DB2, and Postgres due to either more advanced features or price (in the case of Postgres).  Recently, I had the opportunity to take a much more in-depth look at SQL Server 2016.  A few capabilities struck me as significant to our clients’ needs:  columnstore indexes, in-memory tables and indexed views (aka materialized views).  In the first of three blog posts, I’ll cover columnar indexes.  I’ll cover in-memory tables in the second installment and indexed views in the last one.
