SQL Server Performance

T10 Media Purchases SQL-Server-Performance.Com

    Since I started SQL-Server-Performance.Com over six years ago, I have worked to make it the best place on the Internet for SQL Server DBAs and developers to find quality information on SQL Server performance tuning. I have been surprised with the success of the website, which continues to receive over 300,000 unique visitors each month.

    As the website has grown, I have found that I have been spending more time on administrative tasks instead of focusing on content, which is not my first choice. I am more of a SQL Server geek than an administrator, so I have been looking for way to get from under the administrative burden of the website and focus more on content, especially adding new SQL Server 2005 content.

    Well, I have found a way to make this possible. As of 9-1-2006, I have sold the website to T10 Media (owned by Jude O'Kelly).

    But I am not going away. While I have sold the website to get out from under the administrative burden, Jude has retained me as a subject matter expert for the website, so now I will be able to spend more of my time creating new content. At the same time, Jude is going to leverage his administrative and development skills to add many new and exciting features to the website. It is both Jude's and my goal that the website continues to grow and provide even more great SQL Server content.

    Thanks for all your past support. I will still be moderating the forum, and now that I have more time, spending more time answering questions.

    Thanks to all,

    I'm really exited about this great opportunity. I look forward to working with all of you to ensure that sql-server-performance.com continues to deliver great quality content to its users.

    Right now I'm working hard with Brad to get my arms around all the site's functions. But I have some big things planned for the end of this year/start of 2007. Will be consulting you all on this - hopefully we can make the site even better.

    Just want to say a big thanks to Brad, Frank, Satya, Dinesh for all being so helpful and supportive.

    Cheers,
    Jude

    This came as a surprise to me since I am a rare visitor to the site these days (no need to explain, I hope). But welcome to the SSP fold Mr. O'Kelly!
