I recently tried out running SQL Server 2016 on a Google Cloud Platform Windows-based Virtual Machine (GCE – Google Compute Engine Service). This is a quick way to try out new features of the latest version of SQL Server. In this case, I wanted to test out the R (language)-in database services. Although you can … Continue reading SQL Server on Google Cloud Platform
I did some work with the Aerospike team and some other partners (@dchaley and @jamesrcounts) to validate Aerospike performance benchmarks on the Google Cloud using GCE instances. In addition to blogging about the relatively simple 6-step process of setting up a 20-node cluster to get this mind-boggling performance, my team also wrote some scripts so … Continue reading Getting over 4 Million TPS with NoSQL on the Google Cloud with Aerospike
Tooling matters – particularly in the new-to-many-customers cloud world. To that end, I’ve been using cloud storage management tools from CloudBerry Lab with several Enterprise customers and made a quick screencast demo of their Storage Explorer Pro (in this case for GCP – Google Cloud Storage and Nearline).

I gave a presentation at the recent BigDataCampLA on ‘Bleeding Edge Databases’ and included it because of impressive benchmarks, such as 1 Million TPS (read-only workload) PER SERVER and 40K TPS (read-write) on that same server. Here’s the live presentation, … Continue reading How to: Installing AerospikeDB on Google Compute Engine
I gave a talk called ‘Bleeding Edge Databases’ at this weekend’s BigDataCampLA. Several attendees asked me to record the talk, so I did (and will link that post below). Here’s my favorite tweet from the event. @lynnlangit #BigDataCamp "stunned by GCloud performance" and confident enough to spin … Continue reading Bleeding Edge Databases – Aerospike, Algebraix and Google Big Query
Here’s the deck from my talk at #Techorama – enjoy.
Yes, you read this right. Google announced last week at their cloud event, that their IaaS service – Google Compute Engine would begin to offer ‘premium operating systems’ – including Windows. After getting approval from Google to join their limited preview, I tried this functionality out and here’s the results…
I attended a Go Language bootcamp this weekend and wanted to continue my learning by working with Go and the Google Cloud.
