Mike Furgal and I delivered this talk at Progress Exchange 2014 in Orlando, FL on October 8.

Abstract:

Modern computing demands large memory, many CPUs and elaborate storage.

How do you meet these demands for your OpenEdge environment? In this talk we give you advice, tips, useless information, and pointers on the technologies you can use to meet your requirements. Among other things, we will discuss NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access), RAID, SSD, and some of the more advanced OpenEdge RDBMS tuning techniques available in "Modern OpenEdge".

What's in it for you? We'll address that question in a discussion of benefits.
