Here we are with another fascinating episode of the SQL Friday, The Best SQL Server Links Of The Past Week show
Obviously this week is another slow week, here is what I found interesting this past week in SQL Land:
Another good post by the PSS SQL Server Engineers
Sunil Agarwal explains how to enable compression on a table that is a heap (i.e. it does not have a clustered index)
This is a follow-up to the previous article and describes the implications of DML operations on a heap
TempDB basics are explained, this is a must read!!
Michelle Ufford has a post showing if you should partition your index
Greg Low has a nice article about the future of LINQ to SQL. Will LINQ to SQL die and be replaced by the Entity Framework?
Denny Cherry explains how to configure anti virus software if someone wants to put it on your precious SQL box
That is it for this week, I will tag the weekly posts with SQL Friday in case you want to see the whole archive in the future
