DAC - Data-Tier Application Component in SQL 2008 R2 (Buck Woody via LiveMeeting)
Author: Rob Farley Date Posted: 4/29/2010 4:03:35 PM
SQL Server 2008 R2 is out in May. So on May 25th, Buck Woody will be presenting to the Adelaide SQL Server User Group, giving his unique perspective on the Data-Tier Application component, aka the DAC, which has been designed to improve the deployment and management of Data-Tier Applications. In this talk, the strengths and weaknesses of this functionality will be demonstrated, so that you can make up your own mind about this technology.

Buck Woody is well, Buck Woody. He’s a legend of the industry. He has named his blog Carpe Datum, which means “Seize the tiniest piece of data, so tiny that you’d consider it singular”. He used to do a podcast, during his first two years at Microsoft. He called it Real World DBA, but after being employed by Microsoft for a while figured the name didn’t really apply. In past lives he worked for the US Air Force and NASA, and the strange lady at the fair tells him he was also a warrior in Genghis Khan’s army and a nobleman in the court of Edward III. Buck’s talks from conferences always receive outstanding feedback from those who haven’t left part-way through, and it’s a real coup to take over someone else’s government.
