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.”
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.
