Monthly Update

SQLOrlando Monthly Update March 2021

Greetings SQLOrlando’ers!

Hope you’re all doing well and staying safe. Two meetings this month and I know for many of you meeting exhaustion is a thing. If it’s one meeting too many, we get it. On the other hand though, sometimes a few minutes with old friends can be just the thing to remind you that there is still much to look forward to.  

Lunch Meeting Today

Today at noon we have a change of pace, a presentation by Starburst about a distributed SQL engine. One of the challenges with SQL Server is that vertical scaling is easy (but ultimately limited by hardware) and horizontal scaling is hard (usually requiring app changes) so I’m looking forward to seeing a different approach and thinking about how it compares to what most of us do today. Make some lunch and join us for an hour, register at and it will have the link to the Zoom meeting.

Group Meeting on March 16

Deepthi returns! On March 16th we’ll have a presentation requested during her last visit with us, a deep dive on indexes. It will be St Patricks Day, so wear green and/or bring a green beverage to the virtual presentation from 7-9 pm. Register at, link to Zoom is on the page.

Other News

Red Gate has announced that SQLSaturday will be moved to a non-profit foundation. Details still being worked out, but if we can all get our vaccine shots we have a good chance at having an in-person SQLSaturday this fall.
