Abstract

With the release of SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has introduced a new relational technology as part of the SQL Server database engine. Their ACID-compliant, in-memory relational solution (code-named Hekaton, now known as In-Memory OLTP) promises up to a 30-fold improvement in transactional throughput in comparison to the current database engine. This talk will walk through In-Memory OLTP from the standpoint of a database developer implementing the solution, and show both the promise and the "version 1.0" problems with this product.
