Large Scale SharePoint SQL Deck and Teched vs. SharePoint Conference

I can’t complain about the opportunity to speak at Teched.  I always look forward to it and it was great to see a lot of the “regulars” including a very long list of SharePoint MVPs.  With my talk in the SQL track it was great to see a lot of new faces and find the SQL crossover track as a high value opportunity for the SharePoint community to embrace their SQL counterparts.  It was a great session with SQL and SharePoint admins sharing a high value session on Scale.

DAT307 Considerations for Large-Scale SharePoint Deployments on Microsoft SQL Server

Presenters: Paul Learning, Joel Oleson

Tue 5/12 | 1:00 PM-2:15 PM | Room 151

This session will identify architectural design considerations, provide prescriptive guidance and discuss best practices, based on real-world scenarios, around designing storage architecture subsystems for large-scale Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 deployments using SQL Server. Also discussed are best practices for maximizing scalability and performance with SharePoint and SQL Server, as well as techniques for monitoring scalability metrics for existing implementations.

The SharePoint booth this year again was THE place to hang out.  They came through with a few good sets of couches, but not as central as in the past.  At times those couches brush up memories of “friends” episodes of them hanging out with their coffee.  A number of conversations over the years have turned into businesses, serious networking, and valuable side projects.

While Teched outwardly was a success, and track owners were pleased with the results and feedback from attendees, it was clear that Tom Rizzo’s session was tough one toeing the line of how best to do a “Roadmap” presentation while having his hands tied.  Obviously the continued emphasis is on the SharePoint conference as the big coming out party for SharePoint Server 2010. 

Those running the SharePoint conference 2009 in Las Vegas are already very excited to see the SharePoint conference becoming such a swell of energy and excitement with customers, vendors and sponsors… it’s happening like there is no recession and as if SharePoint was THE future and THE answer.  I am personally expecting the SharePoint conference to compete with Teched as the biggest Microsoft conference of the year on multiple levels.  Seems everyone in the community is expecting a lot out of this one.
