PASS Summit 2009

My abstract for PASS Summit 2009 was accepted! Woot! You may not be able to see it from where you’re sitting, but I’m doing the happy dance. 🙂

In case you missed my original post on my abstract submission, here’s what I’ll be presenting on:

Super Bowl, Super Load – A Look at Performance Tuning for VLDB’s

Few DBA’s have the opportunity to experience a real-life load test in their production environment. Michelle Ufford works for, a company that has experienced phenomenal success with its Super Bowl ads. These ads are designed to drive traffic to the company’s websites, which puts the database servers under high load. In her presentation, Michelle will explore the performance tuning techniques that have resulted in an 80% reduction in server response times and allowed her VLDB’s to reach rates of 27k transactions per second. Topics will include vertical and horizontal partitioning, bulk operations, table design, and indexing.

Do you read my blog? Do I read yours? Do we exchange weird messages on Twitter? Do you have free cookies? If you’re going to to the PASS Summit and answered “yes” to any of these questions, then I want to meet you! Make sure to say “hi” to me in Seattle. 🙂

  1. Congrats!!!!

    But the real question is:

    What’s up with the contest
    For S.Q.L. MCs?
    We’re waiting on the results
    Begging on our knees
    Want to know about the illest
    SQL MCs, please!

    OK, that’s the best I could do in under a minute — you get the idea 🙂

    Michelle, that’s phenomenal–not merely your presentation but also & especially your tuning successes. I love working with high-perf VLDBs, & don’t get to do it nearly as often as I’d like. Congrats!

    Don’t listen to Adam… No need to hurry with the contest and publication of entries 😉

    Congrats and this sounds like an interesting presentation. We have definitely exchanged weird tweets, I know I read your blog and I know you read mine at least once (Things you know).. I guess I just need to know what kind of cookies you like and I can have the hat trick + 1.
