Today, the 3rd of July 2015 marks the 2rd anniversary of my very first Columnstore Indexes blog post in the series that is going strong for 60 different posts (57 traditional + 3 azure-focused ones) since then.
On this day, I am announcing the creation of the public release of my Columnstore Indexes Scripts Library – CISL.
The Columnstore Indexes Scripts Library will provide you with a better insight over your indexes behaviour and will help you to determine the causes for the wrong behaviour and performance problems.
For CISL I will be publishing 4 different branches – SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2016 & Azure.
This library will be distributed for free with frequent updates, the right license model is still being evaluated, but hey – we are finally getting there.
Interested ? Sign up for the release announcement.
I am expecting to make a public release somewhere in the begin of the August.
I would like to come back an thank an incredible person who motivated me to start this journey and helped through the first stages of it – Igor Stanko. Huge bow to the person who spent more then enough time in answering my terrible questions and doubts, and simply listening to my feedback – the incredible Sunil Agarwal.
Another thank you goes to Mark Souza, simply because Mark is awesome, and this is all that I can share :) Right moment, right person, right way of handling people – this is all it takes.
Oh well, and of course if you are interested in being one of the beta-testers, let me know :)
I am contacting a number of friends who will are helping me to tune it, and I definitely appreciate more people interested in helping to improve it before the public release.
