Direct3D and OpenGL are competing application programming interfaces (APIs) which can be used in applications to render 2D and 3D computer graphics , taking advantage of hardware acceleration when available. Modern graphics processing unit (GPUs) may implement a particular version of one or both of these APIs. [ edit ] Availability

Introduction Quite often, SQL Server developers need to execute long running SQLs such as updates, inserts, bulk inserts, index creation, and other non-query types of T-SQL. At the end, the total execution time will be a sum of each SQL’s execution time.
Abstract : In the asynchronous world, we can talk about Real async and Simulated async . Each one has its own pros and cons. Let’s see a simplified sample of each case. Sample scenario, let’s assume two systems, A and B : 1.- A sends a message to B . 2.- B processes the request from A . 3.- B returns a response to A.
