Relational?!? Move On, Geezer!Maybe you're thinking that relational databases management systems (RDBMSs), like Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle, are going the way of punched cards and rotary phones.

I’d like your opinion here.
Follow my logic here for a moment as I walk through a couple
rhetorical questions. Have you ever had a friend developed an
application entirely on SQL Server Developer Edition? (Not that YOU
would ever do such a thing, but maybe you know someone who has. Right?)
And has your friend’s IT department ...
One of the things that I enjoy about working for Quest Software is that we give back copiously to the community. From activities and offerings like SQLServerPedia, to our free posters mailed anywhere in North America (and don't forget the free hi-res PDFs for the rest of the world),
Don't forget that free DVDs of our virtual conferences ...
Brent Ozar (blog | twitter) and I did an interview with TechTarget’s Brendan Cournoyer at last summer's Tech-Ed, which as turned into a podcast titled “Cloud efforts advance, SQL Server evolves.” The podcast covers all the major trends at the conference (like BI), virtualization features in Quest’s products (like Spotlight), Brent’s new book ...

Before I jump onto the Goals and Themeword meme started by my buddy, Thomas LaRock (blog | twitter),
I decided I'd spend a few minutes looking back on both the year 2009.

yet. Major problems of every stripe beset me on all sides and with
alarming frequency throughout ...
I was honored to be recently interviewed by the crew at Consortio
Services. You can find my portion of this particular webcast at http://www.cstechcast.com/podcasts/cs-techcast/episode99/ beginning at 17:24. In
the interview, I discuss a number of thoughts and opinions about the
future of cloud computing, where our profession is ...
In the Sequels for SQL series, I point you to sites where you can go
beyond the nose-to-the-grindstone resources that we see every day as
SQL Server professionals. (My favorite resource for pan-SQL Server
pointers is Steve Jone's Database Weekly email newsletter.) These are
the story that comes after and outside (the sequels) of ...
I was happy to hear that the magazine Database Trends and Applications had recently relaunched their website. While I'd been a columnist
there for a quite a while, I'd never been able to easily find my own
articles nor check to see if they'd generated any interest. DBTA has
