I wanted to publish a quick note about something a little near and dear to me. As of today, Feb 25th, 2022, Microsoft made the official announcement that they are retiring SQL Server Big Data Clusters. You can read the full statement here.
“Support for SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters will end on January 14, 2025.”
Quite frankly, to me, this is sad news. I was awarded my Microsoft MVP because of the work I did with Big Data Clusters. From speaking to blogging and creating videos on the topic.
On the bright side, during my time speaking and talking about BDCs, I met some amazing people and made some great friendships.
Remember, technologies come and go but networking, meeting new people and making friends are forever.
Bye Bye BDC.

Thank you very much for the priceless information within your YouTube channel. We have a need to scale up our system. While I was searching for a solution, I discovered your channel and I got excited b cause BDC could be the solution to our organization but I just discovered it hat BDC is going to retired . What is our options now if BDC is not an option any more?
