It's come to this: tonight's the night. All the waiting, the deadlocks, cruel licensing and abuse to innocent SQL Statements… tonight's the night I let my Dark Passenger roam free and solve… finally solve this problem that plagues developers everywhere: SQL Server. There it sits, pretending… just like me. Pretending to love my data and be an upstanding citizen of our development group. All the while… in the dark, fetid reaches of it's kernel it's silently plotting. Soaking up RAM and carefully laying licensing traps that will suck the blood from our company… But not this time.This time I won't let it - and I have a plan. I won't do it alone - I'll bring in my trusty friend Postgres to confront SQL Server and force it to see the evil thing it's become for developers. And when the time is right, and SQL Server is strapped to the table begging to be set free, I'll pull out my favorite weapon of choice… shiny, simple, sharp and brilliant: Redis. And I'll send it straight into SQL Server's heart once and for all.
