The database schema is like a solid foundation for a house, if you want an application that will scale, perform well and be able to support the application growth, then you need to have a strong database design.
What is important when you are designing a new data model that needs to support thousands of users and terabytes of data? How does the schema design impact the server resources like IO requests and the memory efficiency? How do the SQL Server features like data compression, new data types and in-memory capabilities impact your database design?
By the end of this session, you will have a solid understanding on how you can design a data model that will take advantage of your infrastructure and leverage the new SQL Server features.
