SQL Server Radio is a Podcast for SQL Server DBAs, database developers, architects, system administrators, and anyone else who is interested in the Microsoft SQL Server platform and the Microsoft data platform in general.

Half of all advertising dollars are wasted. We just don't know which half. That's a common view from people purchasing advertising, and it's why I expect that this saying is what has led to complaints from Google, Facebook, and other large firms that track people across different sites and apps. They have built frameworks that make it easy to add m…
 
Let’s say you have completed a lift and shift VM hosting to the cloud. Great—you now use Iaas services. While you don’t have to worry about the hardware, managing the software can be problematic. The SQL Server IaaS Agent Extension can offer some PaaS-like services and make it easier to manage the database environment. In this episode we chat with …
 
Alex Yates has become quite the DevOps consultant in the last few years. I used to work with Alex at Redgate before he left to start his own consulting firm. I hear nothing but good things about his work, and if you are looking for someone to help guide your database development team, he'd be a good choice. He wrote a piece on the Octopus Deploy bl…

The three themes for speakers at this year's PASS Data Community Summit are: Back to Basics, Reach for the Clouds, and Level Up. The goal here is content that covers a wide variety of areas, with many fewer restrictions from previous years. Perhaps the big thing to note for this year's event is: Free. That's right, this year's Summit is free for th…
 
I was listening to Kendra present at Redgate recently and she said this: Working predictable hours makes me better at my job. Actually, she said she was not better at her job by working longer. Kendra has been very successful, she's driven and a bit of a workaholic. I used to think I was, but after spending a few years at Redgate with her, she can …
 
Have you ever created a report in a visualization tool, spent all this time and energy creating something that looked really cool, went through more edits than you could remember only to deliver the report and have the recipient go “What am I looking at?” I don’t think I am the only one and, in this episode, we explore some of the rookie mistakes I…
 
It’s officially “I need a patch for that day” and to celebrate our hosts have gone all out, quaffing the West Country’s finest cocktail. Talking all things patching, Chris and Chris tackle the million $ debate: hot fixes- hero or villain?

I've been working on various skills over the last few years, trying to solve some simple problems in Python and PowerShell, in addition to T-SQL, to continue to improve my skills. It's an interesting challenge at times, especially when I need to use new features or functions to which I haven't had exposure in the past. I also work with R lightly, a…
 
I am a fan of teaching someone to fish, rather than giving them fish. But when teaching someone, I want to allow them to make mistakes and not just dictate how they work. I want them to learn how to solve problems themselves, gain knowledge, and improve skills. I was watching some of the Pluralsight Tech Skills day recently and in the Scott Hanselm…
 
I was watching a PoSh session at the PowerShell + DevOps Global Summit recently where a sysadmin had a series of scripts to run when there was a problem. One of these was Rapid Response, which gathers information from a machine(s) and stores it in a series of files. It's a grab bag of various items, but the data can be used to help determine what's…

Many years ago I was in the Denver airport, waiting to board a plane. At the time I was consulting with a small startup company and they called me in a panic, having had an issue with their database deployment and needing to restore the previous version. However, they were getting the "The media set has 2 media families but only 1 are provided. All…
 
My middle kid is about to graduate from college and is starting to look for a job. I suspect he won't have too much trouble, as an aeronautical engineer near the top of his class, but I do think that it's going to be more challenging to find employment than it was two years ago. Though likely better than last year. While my employer has continued t…

Is it a beer, is it a muffin or is it a Panda Pop? Who knows but at 9% strength, producer Louise joins our Chris duo as plan B, to monitor proceedings. Very fitting as our discussion focuses on monitoring for the modern data age. We talk busyness, hybrid estates, tooling, Multi-RDBMS, and a surprising amount about car mechanics. In The News we deba…
