With Microsoft SQL Server 2022, object storage becomes a first-class citizen through a feature called external tables. There are two parts: an S3 connector and enhancements to the Polybase data virtualization framework. With this addition, enterprises can now query massive object stores with SQL Server 2022 wherever those object stores exist. The new feature addresses two key customer challenges: ways to access the data where it is and not having to learn new languages. With MinIO, data can be anywhere, including public cloud infrastructure, private clouds, Kubernetes distributions and at the edge.
The webinar will feature a discussion of the key SQL Server release features and their implications for the enterprise, with a particular emphasis on MinIO technology, and include a demo showing how it works, how easy it is to deploy and what to expect from a performance perspective.
