Notes: Questions and Topics

SQL Server 2022 RC0

Our first topic of the night is SQL Server 2022. RC0 was released a few days before and we talked a bit about what that means for the SQL Server timeline. My wild guess with zero insider information is that it probably releases for Ignite or PASS Summit—that’s what they’ve done with several recent versions of SQL Server and there’s enough time for RC1 and an RC2 if needed before RTM.

Data Virtualization in SQL Server 2022

The main topic of the night was a bit of a soliloquy on data virtualization in SQL Server 2022. I got into the history of PolyBase in SQL Server, how it has evolved through the years, and some of the changes in SQL Server 2022. I also ranted a bit about Windows authentication bugs and long-standing issues that I hoped would have been fixed but no dice.

LastPass Breach

LastPass announced a breach in which attackers were able to steal source code and technical documents. They didn’t get access to do anything to encrypted vaults, though what they did get is bad enough.
