Presenter: Don Vilen, Scalability Experts
Session 07 (18:00 GMT on May 19)
SQL Server 2008 introduced Filtered Indexes and Sparse Columns. Although they are perhaps especially powerful when used together, they also can be used independently. This session covers the basics and then dives into the areas where they work well—and not so well—both together and separately.
