Joe is currently in the Azure SQL Data Warehouse team working primarily on the storage engine and tier-1, Petabyte (almost) enterprise data warehouse scenarios. Prior to this, he was the PM owner of SQL Server 2016 Stretch Database; the first truly hybrid database in the industry.
Joe cut his database teeth on Oracle serving hard time as a developer then DBA. One too many ORA-01578 later, he joined Microsoft to work on SQL Server in the areas of upgrade/migrate, performance, scalability and security on both on-premises and Azure services. Between stints in the product group he spent several years as a consultant designing, deploying, managing and fixing large and/or distributed SQL Server systems around the world.
