Optimize your costs with Azure SQL Managed Instance

Microsoft sponsored on-demand webinar

Webcast Abstract

Migrating your SQL Server data to the cloud can yield immediate cost savings when your IT spend shifts from a capital expense to an operational expense. However, there are many other ways you can continue to optimize your costs in the cloud to significantly lower your total cost of ownership.

Azure SQL Managed Instance is an intelligent cloud database service combining the broadest SQL Server engine compatibility with the benefits of a fully managed platform as a service. Join this webcast to see how Microsoft Azure SQL Managed Instance and Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors can help you:

  • Avoid app rewrite costs – High SQL Server compatibility ensures you avoid app rewrite costs and shortens migration time and risks.
  • Utilize the value of PaaS – Experience a fully managed platform as a service and decrease direct costs related to maintenance, backups, high-availability, or data center operations.
  • Right-size according to your needs – Optimize costs by choosing the appropriate service tier, hardware tier, and instance size based on your business and technical requirements.
  • Utilize unique benefits and capabilities – Achieve significant savings by lowering licensing costs with Azure Hybrid Benefit, reduce cloud costs with reserved capacity pricing, and create a secondary database with a free geo-DR benefit. Additionally, admin capabilities such as start/stop and backup LTR/STR can enable you to significantly reduce costs. Development costs can also be reduced by leveraging capabilities such as read-only replicas and virtualization.
