Clustered Indexes

… which, for those in the know, means something to do with SQL Server. (The closest physical feature in Oracle  is the index-organized table, the closest sounding name for an Oracle feature is the index cluster - which, just to add to the confusion, must have a specific index that is called the cluster index).

Redgate has arranged for an online debate between an Oracle specialist (me) and a SQL Server specialist (Grant Fritchey) to talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the two mechanisms, discuss why Oracle users seem to be biased towards one implementation and SQL Server users towards the other, and then see where the conversation takes us. This will be followed by a Q&A session.

If this sounds interesting – and I think it’s a great idea, you can learn an awful lot more from a discussion than you can by listening to monologue – you need to sign up early. The event will be held on 7th June at 16:00 BST.

Update: It’s only a week away, now, so I thought I’d pop this advert to the top of the stack to remind people about it.
