I've created a video of the demonstration that we used in the Ask TOM Office Hours session on configuring the In-Memory (IM) column store. Maria Colgan (@SQLMaria) joined me for the demo and in it we review allocating the IM column store, populating the LINEORDER table and reviewing how much space has been allocated and used. This updates information that we wrote about quite a while ago in our Getting Started series with Installing and Enabling Database In-Memory and In-Memory Population. In this video we also talk about how Database In-Memory works in a Multitenant environment, which we originally covered in this…

A graph structure is extremely useful for predicting properties of its constituents. The most successful way of performing this prediction is to map each entity to a vector through the use of deep neural networks.

Before TidalScale, I spent years working with animation software to create visual effects for major motion pictures. As part of that process, I learned something that DevOps and IT administrators have since realized: delivering on difficult schedules often means making maximum and efficient use of hardware resources, and servers in particular.

But DevOps? Read on to see what I mean.

Animation and visual effects (VFX) are enormously resource- and time-intensive. It takes a long time to render, or create, the various elements that come together in an animation or VFX. Rendering…

Skyway: connecting managed heaps in distributed big data systems Nguyen et al., ASPLOS’18 Yesterday we saw how to make Java objects persistent using NVM-backed heaps with Espresso.
