Life on SQL Server 2008 – PASS interview with a large-scale user

During the PASS Community Summit, Rick Heiges did an interview with Thomas Grohser, the Senior Database Engineer at the bwin Interactive Entertainment AG, the world's largest online gambling company. This is the private client Kimberly and I were onsite with for a week last month in Vienna before heading to Barcelona for TechEd. In the interview, Thomas reveals some of the cool throughput statistics of their workload and his early impressions of SQL Server 2008.
