Concurrency control, aka locking and blocking, is one of the central tenets of the ACID properties of transactions in a relational database. And yet, when done poorly, locking issues can slow down or bring any database application to a standstill. This webinar takes you through a variety of demos to teach you all of the ins and outs about locking, blocking, and transactions in SQL Server and Azure SQL.

Cut from a six-hour marathon recording session with Torsten and Kevin, this session drills down into topics:

  • Common concurrency problem situations
  • Why and how SQL Server escalates locks from row- or page-level to a full table lock
  • How to partition tables for improved locking performance
  • And much more

SQL Server offers a wide variety of ways to ensure transactional concurrency and consistency. Register for this webinar to demos of these scenarios so that you can write better applications and administrate your databases more effectively!
