Find out about the future of SQL Server 2000 and extreme scaling from Microsoft's resident expert in large databases.

Jim Gray was a key player in building the TerraServer, a 12-terabyte spatial data warehouse using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as its building blocks. The TerraServer Web site averages 7 million hits per day. That's the sort of project Jim Gray likes. He founded and runs Microsoft's Bay Area Research Center (BARC), a research lab that focuses on scalable computing by building superservers and workgroup systems from commodity software and hardware. These modular systems also have built-in fault tolerance, allowing continuous operation in case of failure.

Jim will deliver a keynote address at VSLive! San Francisco in February—to tide you over, Visual Studio Magazine's executive editor Lee Thé talked with him about extreme scaling, integration of heterogeneous data types, and more. Thanks Justin.
