Video: Amazon Web Services (AWS) : Relational Database Services (RDS) for SQL Server

Here’s another video on my YouTube channel. This one is a quick run through of RDS for SQL Server, a DBaaS offering from Amazon Web Services.

Importance of Network to the Cloud

I’ve been discussing for years about the importance of network to database performance, especially once I started working on VLDBs, (Very Large Databases) but its a topic that often is disregarded.  Now that I’m working more and more in the cloud, it’s become more evident the importance of the network to our survival.

The interface for Microsoft Azure has been re-jigged since I last did screen shots, so I did a run through of creating an Oracle Linux VM and recorded it for my channel.

All I Want for Christmas

I love working for Oracle.  I haven’t found a company with better work/life balance, better benefits or wide variety of technical products for one to learn from.  As we move into the world of cloud, there is one thing that I would like to ask Santa for-  access to the Oracle cloud.

The title is of course inspired by “They took our jobs!” from South Park.

My answers usually include some of the following points.
