With the release of Microsoft SQL Server® 2014, one of the features we focused on was the long-awaited In-Memory OLTP (also known as In-Memory Optimization). The computational benefits of using In-Memory Optimization in SQL Server® are many, especially when using this technology against specific types of workloads and this is something that generated the idea of writing a simulator that could be used for easily testing In-Memory Optimization in SQL Server® 2014 or later. To this end, after two years of development and testing, we are now ready to share In-Memory OLTP Simulator with with the rest of the world!
