We are incredibly excited to be sending our CTO, OJ Ngo, to SQLBits 2024 later this month in Farnborough, UK to join the Microsoft team for a couple special guest speaking appearances.

If you are unfamiliar with the conference, the SQLBits website describes this event as, “The industry’s leading Data Platform conference with over 300 sessions across 5 days covering data technologies including SQL Server, Azure, Big Data, Power BI, Machine Learning, and more.”

One of the best thing about SQLBits is that you can attend in-person or virtually, and the event has continued an amazing tradition of keeping the final day, Saturday, totally FREE to attend. This year, Free Saturday also happens to be the day of one of our sessions with Microsoft. Check out the details regarding DH2i’s participation in this year’s event below:

Friday, March 22 – Theater Demo Session

Location: Microsoft Booth
Time: 11:10AM- 11:30AM
Title: The DH2i Operator for SQL Server
Speakers: Amit Khandelwal & OJ Ngo


Amit and OJ will be introducing DH2i’s DxOperator and showing a short demo to show how this technology rapidly automates the deployment of SQL Server Availability Groups in Kubernetes and unlocks unparalleled customization.

Saturday, March 23- General Session

Location: Gate 3
Time: 9:00AM- 9:50AM
Title: SQL Server Containers & Kubernetes – Going to Production!
Speakers: Amit Khandelwal, Tejas Shah, & OJ Ngo


This session will:

  • Explore the benefits and challenges of containerizing SQL Server
  • Show you how to deploy and maintain SQL Server containers for production or dev/QA workloads, including HA/DR and monitoring
  • Help you understand how to create a truly hybrid SQL Server environment that scales distribution platforms and cloud environments
  •  Provide details on reference architectures for SQL Server Kubernetes deployments and touch on upcoming feature roadmap for SQL Server containers

SQLBits allows you to register for anywhere from 1-5 days of attendance at this year’s event, virtual or in-person. If you’re only planning to attend Free Saturday, you still need to make sure you get registered for the event right here: https://events.sqlbits.com/2024/.

It should be an amazing 2024 event and we hope you can make it!
