It appears that I’ve been selected to give a couple of presentations at the premier Microsoft SQL Server conference again this year. At the 2012 SQL PASS Summit in Seattle, WA this year I’ll be presenting a regular session titled “Where Should I Be Encrypting My Data?” where I’ll be talking about all the various places within the application stack that data can be encrypted. We will also be looking at some of the more spectacular data breeches to talk about where things appeared to have gone wrong.
The second session that I’ll be presenting will be an all day pre-con on high availability called “SQL Server 2012 in a Highly Available World“. During this will day session we will be looking at the legacy high availability solutions such as Database Mirroring, Log Shipping and SQL Server Clustering, but we will also be looking at the new AlwaysOn Availability Groups to see really when you should be looking at each one of these solutions, and when you should be combining some of these solutions to get even higher (and more complex) availability options. While this high availability session does come with an extra cost, it’ll be worth every penny.
I hope to see you at the SQL PASS summit.
