It’s official!

Well, now I’m no longer a ‘Softie’. It feels a little strange after having been on the SQL team for 8.5 years but I’m really jazzed about all the stuff we’ll be doing over the next year and more here at SQLskills. We’re taking a small vacation before diving in – first thing I’ll be doing when I return is revamping and updating all of my content from the SQL Server Storage Engine blog and reposting the updates here. After that I’ll be posting a bunch on Katmai and working through my backlog of blog topics. I can’t wait to get started – stay tuned…

  1. cool Paul..

    I am a loyal fan to your sql storage engine blog and anxious to see what you have in store for us.

    What’s gonna happen to the sql storage engine blog now that you left?

    Thank you,


  2. Hi Bill – hopefully the PM team in the Storage Engine will continue to blog. I’ll be reposting the most important info on my new blog, with plenty of updated and expanded material. Thanks!

  3. Hi Paul,

    If the corruption happens to be related to I/O Erros and there is nothing in the Event log or anywhere that points to I/O related issues, is there any Trace flag that we can enable when performing checkdb or checktable operations that can show us any information related to I/O Problems, Driver issues etc?. we have table corruptions happening on a regular basis but I need some kind of evidence to show to the SAN guys thats its a disk issue and not necessarily SQL Server. Any ideas or suggestions?
