On the 8th of November, I delivered a session (together with Wesley Backelant) on SQL Server Days about the new AlwaysOn functionalities in SQL 2014. I love to talk about SQL Server but unfortunately I was only able to speak on local Belgian events like, SQL Server Days, Community Day, Microsoft Discovery Day… I tried already a few times to speak at other international events like SQLBITS or SQL PASS Summit, but I never got selected… I didn’t gave up and I wanted to see how my chances are to present on a SQL Saturday event. So I submitted a few sessions for SQL Saturday in Slovenia and guess what, I got selected!! It will be my first international event and I’m really looking forward to meet the Slovenian SQL people and the other speakers. Special thanks go to my current employer Kohera for supporting me!
Harder, Better, Stronger and More Secure
The first part of my session, I’m going to talk about the new functionalities of AlwaysOn in SQL Server 2014 including live demo to add a replica to Windows Azure. The second part will be about the new backup features in SQL 2014 like backup to URL, managed backup and encryption. I will not focus on the basic AlwaysOn and backup capabilities but on the investments in SQL Server 2014 in the hybrid cloud area.

Hope to see you all there!
