Containers and Clones for SQL Server Development and Test

Microsoft emphasizes the use of containers for development and test on SQL Server 2017, and new database cloning solutions from Red Gate and Windocks add support for delivery of large environments in seconds.    We’ll explore use of Docker based containers, and how database cloning enhances container strategies, and their respective pros and cons.  

Paul is a co-founder at Windocks, where he is pioneering the use of Docker containers combined with database clones for an easy to implement modernization of Windows based software development. 

WE ARE LOOKING for a new Chapter Leader and volunteers to help with the PNWSQL user group. We need  elp setting the future directions, meeting topics, and community involvement. Please contact Ron Talmage or Diane Robey if you would like to help out.
