Understanding SQL Server Concurrency
"In-Memory OLTP is a game changer for relational databases, and especially for OLTP systems."
— Rimma Nehme, Microsoft, foreword to SQL Server Internals: In-Memory OLTP
In-memory OLTP is changing the way database professionals store and access relational data. Nicknamed Project Hekaton, this new technology is able to take massive advantage of the recent advances in processor speed and affordability.
The Hekaton internals knowledge Kalen Delaney provides in SQL Server Internals: In-Memory OLTP will help you migrate existing tables or databases to Hekaton, and get faster performance from your SQL Server applications than you ever thought possible.
