This years Christmas wish list for Microsoft

Once again its the first Monday of the month. This means its time for another #mememondy presented by Thomas LaRock . This months topic is what gift do you want Microsoft to leave for you under the tree this year? For this post I am going to list two items I would love to see in SQL Server 2012.

  1. Distributed Replay to be easy to configure, work as advertised and include the great reporting features I am used to seeing with RML Utilities.  Currently, I don’t see much for reporting with Distributed Replay in BOL.  No, need to convert SQL Traces multiple times.
  2. AlwaysOn to be included in SQL Server 2012  Standard Edition. Yes, I know this is a long shot but hey its my Christmas list 🙂
