statisticsio: I should pdf the essential posts from @aspiringgeek and sqlcat because everytime I really need them blogs.msdn.com is crawling.
Yes, aspiringgeek is my Twitter handle. Who’d’ve thunk it?
And who’d’ve thunk Microsoft’s blogging backend could be so nonperformant? Jason isn’t alone—there’s been a bit of dialog internally as well.
This week our old SQL Server has been replaced by a beefier new one, & SProcs have been tweaked. The downtime was worth it. Our pages are loading ¡mucho mas rapido, amigos!
Alicia Cales, a Program Manager whose exact capacity eludes me but who has epitomized grace under pressure (as well as recently lending her personal assistance to get me out of a jam), reports that beefier hardware has been added to our backend & some SProcs have been tweaked.
The result so far is fairly profound. Check out your favorite MSDN blogs & see for yourself.
Kudos to those responsible—Alicia & others—for gittin’-‘r-done.
