Title: Hash and Non-Clustered In-Memory OLTP Indexes in Azure SQL


Microsoft provides two fundamentally different index types in the in-memory OLTP engine. In this session, we will focus on the differences between the hashed and non-clustered in-memory index types and in which scenario which index should be preferred. We will also look at the structure of both index types to better understand the differences, limitations, and advantages.
