Containers and Clones for SQL Server Development and Test
Microsoft is emphasizing the use of containers for development and test on SQL Server 2017, and new solutions from Red Gate and Windocks add support for containers and SQL Server database virtualization (cloning) for the full range of the SQL Server family. We'll explore use of Docker based tooling for delivery of container environments, and their pros and cons. We'll also look at SQL Server cloning, and how clones enable Dev and Test teams to work on large database environments for containers as well as existing SQL Server instances.
Speaker: Paul Stanton
Paul Stanton is a principal at Windocks, a team of former Microsoft engineers who have delivered an independent port of Docker's open source to Windows. Windocks includes support for SQL Server cloning and containers for all editions of SQL Server 2008 onward.
