Description

In this course you will learn all about SQL Server's In-Memory Processing Engine also known as In-Memory OLTP. To this end, you will learn how to enable In-Memory OLTP in SQL Server, what memory-optimized tables and natively-compiled stored procedures are, as well as, how to boost the performance of your data processes using this powerful SQL Server feature.

In-Memory OLTP, is SQL Server's In-Memory Processing Engine, seamlessly integrated into its Database Engine. With its two main components, that is memory-optimized tables and natively-compiled stored procedures, In-Memory OLTP can help you achieve significant performance improvements and speedups for many of your data processes.

In-Memory OLTP was originally shipped with SQL Server 2014 but was significantly enhanced in SQL Server 2016 and later. From SQL Server 2016 SP1 and later, In-Memory OLTP is available for use in all editions of SQL Server (besides the LocalDB edition), which is something that makes it a must, to at least try this great feature in SQL Server.

Especially now, in this data-driven era we live in, where business decisions and many other areas depend on the fast analysis of large sets of data, maintaining a low latency for your data processes is critical. SQL Server's In-Memory OLTP Engine can help with that.

Via my course "Boost SQL Server Database Performance with In-Memory OLTP", you will get introduced to SQL Server In-Memory OLTP and you will learn how to start using it fast and easy. Since In-Memory OLTP is integrated into SQL Server's Database Engine, it is very easy to start using it. By the time you work with memory-optimized tables and natively-compiled stored procedures via the well-known T-SQL, it makes it easy to start using memory-optimized tables and natively-compiled stored procedures too. Via my course, I provide all the necessary knowledge and hands-on guides, that will help you start using In-Memory OLTP and realize its huge potential when it comes to significantly improving the performance of your data processes.


AFTER THE COURSE YOU WILL KNOW:

  • What is the In-Memory OLTP Engine in SQL Server and how it works

  • What Memory-Optimized Tables are and which are their main characteristics

  • What Natively-Compiled Stored Procedures are and how they work

  • How to Use In-Memory OLTP for Boosting the Performance of your Data Processes, by utilizing memory-optimized tables and natively-compiled stored procedures

  • How to migrate your data processes to In-Memory OLTP

    • How to find the right candidate databases, data processes and tables for migrating it to In-Memory OLTP 

    • How to analyze your tables and stored procedures prior to planning their migration to In-Memory OLTP

    • Ways to estimate if your workload's performance can benefit from In-Memory OLTP


PREREQUISITES:

  • Basic knowledge of SQL Server and data principles


THIS COURSE CONTAINS/OFFERS:

  • 2.5 hours of high-quality video

  • Live demonstrations and hands-on guides

  • Useful quizzes for testing your knowledge on each section
