We Came, We Demoed, We Conquered: PASS Summit 2019

We don’t always drink cold beverages during the winter, but when we do, we enjoy them in a DH2i branded koozie. Swag abounded on the exhibitor floor at PASS Summit Seattle, and the event has continued to follow its upward trajectory—growing bigger and crazier every year.

While we definitely hoped some folks would grab a DH2i koozie or webcam sticker during their visit to our booth, our hunch was that our demos would end up stealing the show. I’d say we were right!

We were thrilled to have a truly engaged crowd of people to take in our demo content every day of the conference, and we got our biggest reaction during our final presentation of “Cross-Platform Multi-Cloud AGs without a VPN.” As you can tell just by reading the title, this is an extremely powerful demo that demonstrates something no other technology in existence can do: highly available Availability Groups between Windows AND Linux—without configuring a VPN or exposing any open ports between the replicas. It’s an achievement we are extremely proud of, so it was incredible to get such a resoundingly positive response.

Overall, the team is feeling super optimistic after PASS Summit and thankful for all the new and old friends we had the chance to see. Now, the yearly cycle starts over and we’ll go to work trying to bring an even cooler booth experience to next year’s event.

If you want to see what you missed or want to take a deeper dive into the technology we demoed at PASS, join our free online event on November 20th at 2pm ET. I’ll be recapping all of our best demos from PASS in one epic webinar!
