Re: 12/7 presentation for TriPass.

The only thing I wish was for some proof. You said that overhead is down 12% -- I wish you had some stats or numbers to back that up. Like on load test IO was at x and on VM with Hyper-V it was y... It just wasn't enough to stop me from wincing when I am told to virtualize.

Biggest gem from the night: information on cylinders and how that effects extents/data page.

Really enjoyed this, very informative and helpful. Well worth the the time. Noticed you also speak on other subjects that I would like to attend. Great presentation and do not regret coming out in the cold rainy night to attend - Thanks for helping me understand this topic more.

Inspiring expert who knows who to know. A fun presentation on a rather boring topic. Tended to roam a bit during the discussion but always managed to bring it back to center. He has vast experience and depth. We had some laughs but I learned how much I don't know, which is a good thing. Thanks for coming to CLT!
