SQL Server IO - Avoiding the Unnecessary 




Presentation Abstract


This presentation will talk about all the IO that can happen in your SQL Server environment and the challenges you can face. 

Along the way you will also see how we can manage IO in SQL Server and even change the way IO is written to disk using SimpliVity technology. 

“The best IO is the one you don’t have to do – Gene Amdahl”





Jay Patel 

Jay Patel is a technology strategist with over 20 years of experience in information technology, business processes and system integration. Jay is currently the Regional Director Solution Architect – Western United States and Canada at SimpliVity, where he is responsible for field engineering team. Prior to SimpliVity, Jay was an integral member of the Director of the DCV team at Presidio West, Northern California Channel Team at EMC, and enabling partners on how to grow their expertise with the EMC portfolio.

During the last 20 years, Jay has co-founded multiple businesses in various markets including retail sports, bio-fuel and IS. He has assisted multiple start-up companies reach their IPO, and has presented in front of venture capitalists and angels alike.  Jay’s IT background spans across multiple verticals, but he has dedicated the majority of his career in big data, business analytics and data centers.

Jay’s main goal is to prove to business owners that IT can be a revenue center and not a cost center. “Businesses today buy IT to be reactive to market conditions,” Jay explains, “but infrastructure is a commodity and workloads are portable; therefore, I want to make people understand that IT can highly support their data usage and growth without the burden of expensive infrastructure.”

Jay previously held the position of Chairman of the World Organization of Service Clubs, a charity that raises money for disadvantaged children and is a graduate of University of Manchester Information Systems and Technology (UMIST). He is an enthusiastic Manchester United fan and currently lives in the California wine country with his wife and their 2 children.
