In the keynote of PASS summit 2016 Rohan Kumar, the program manager for SQL Server proudly displayed a database restore to a SQL Server instance installed on Linux. What makes this all even more interesting is the database was sourced from a Windows server. While it might not sound like much, the number of operating systems SQL Server runs on has now doubled. This is no small feat and our guest today Travis Wright is the program manager for the SQL Server on Linux migration. While I have to admit I was not super excited about the news when it came out last year, I am definitely more interested and think there is a huge opportunity for SQL Server administrators to get access to jobs they wouldn’t have before. I know you will enjoy this interview with Travis.
