ABSTRACT OF THE TALK
Oh wow. What a weird title. Full of terms that don’t fit together. Or do they?
This talk is for believers, those who believe that the author will deliver what the title says.
Here’s the promise on what you will see:
* Time-series specialized storage and functions on SQL Server.
* SQL Server running on Kubernetes.
* Using ARM64 (aarch64) nodes.
* In reality, without using SQL Server, but rather Postgres Babelfish!
The talk will be focused on a demo to show all these components working together. Surely the demo will fail badly, so get ready your rotten tomatoes! The good news is that you will be able to reproduce the demo on your environment too, as all the software used is open source and source code will be provided.
KEY TAKE-AWAYS FROM THE TALK
A key to progress is to combine technologies in novel ways to bring new capabilities to environments that typically lack them. For example, using Postgres Babelfish (a SQL Server-compatible Postgres flavor) and Timescaledb (time-series extension for Postgres) we can deliver open source time-series native capabilities on top of SQL Server protocol, available to SQL Server users.
