Glancing into MS SQL Server

I have not been able to blog for a while. My family has grown, and so there have been different priorities.

In the meantime, I was told to become responsible for a few MS SQL Server databases as well. I took it for a challenge, and started digging into a different world. Well, sometimes different, sometimes similar.

One of the first questions I will have to answer for myself is the penalty for using snapshot read consistency – you know, avoiding read locks in the Microsoft way: Copy the block into tempdb, maybe anybody will need it. As an IO- and performance junkie, my backside notices pain in advance. We will see.

Take care
