Introduction to Hekaton Part One: MVCC
Hello folks, welcome to a post focusing on one of the future features of SQL Server. SQL Server 2012 is barely a year old, yet there is already talk on a feature that is to ship in the next major release of SQL Server. The current name of this feature is Hekaton, which is Greek for 100. I believe the reason for this name is because of the performance boost that one online gaming company experienced when working with Microsoft in implementing the technology preview of Hekaton.
