Managing In-Memory OLTP – A DBA Field Guide
In-Memory OLTP in SQL Server 2016/2017 has been reborn. Many limitations within the previous versions have been removed, making it a viable option for a variety of workloads. In this session, we will highlight critical issues in implementing and managing SQL Server 2016/2017 instances and databases containing In-Memory objects.
