I’m really excited about speaking at SQL Saturday on my favorite topic!
SQLSaturday is a free training event for Microsoft Data Platform professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server, Business Intelligence and Analytics. I’m all for that!
At this event, I’ll be discussing Accelerating DevOps and TDM Using Data Virtualization. This is my favorite topic, because for the 20 years that I worked as a DBA, I ran into the same roadblock time and again. The roadblock of data volume.
“DevOps” is a conflation of parts of the words “development” and “operations”, and it represents the grass-roots movement to merge application development, application testing, and IT operations into one continuous stream. All tasks from coding to testing to operations must be automated so that new features and fixes can be delivered on a continual flow.
I had the opportunity to attend Delphix‘s Company Kick Off last week in San Francisco. This was my first time at an event of this nature and it was incredibly successful.
This was received by one of our Delphix AWS Trial customers and he wasn’t sure how to address it. If any others experience it, this is the why it occurs and how you can correct it.
We’ve been working hard to create an incredible new trial version of Delphix that uses AWS, which is built with the open source product Terraform. Terraform is a tool that anyone can use to build, version and manage a product effectively and seamlessly in a number of clouds.
When tearing down an AWS Delphix Trial, we run the following command with Terraform:
I’ve mentioned before that every time I execute this command, I suddenly feel like I’m in control of the Death Star in Star Wars:
Now, for most of us, we’re living in a mobile world, which means as our laptop travels, our office moves and our IP address changes. This can be a bit troubling for those that are working in the cloud and our configuration to our cloud relies on locating us via our IP Address being the same as it was in our previous location.
I ran across an article from 2013 from Straight Talk on Agile Development by Alex Kuznetsov and it reminded me how long we’ve been battling for easier ways of doing agile in a RDBMS environments.
So you thought you were finished configuring your AWS target, eh? I already posted a previous time on how to address a fault with the RMEM, but now we’re onto the WMEM. Wait, WM-what?
There are more configurations for AWS than there are fish in the sea, but as the rush of folks arrive to test out the incredibly cool AWS Trial for Delphix, I’ll add my rendition of what to look for to know you’re AWS setup is prepped to successfully deploy.
Ah, yes, it’s that RMOUG Training Days time of the year again!
As a techie, I didn’t put a lot of time into my slides when I first started presenting, thinking I’d simply dazzle them with my amazing knowledge.
