Moving SQL Server workload to the cloud
Microsoft Azure SQL (DB and Managed instance) are "fully managed" SQL Server databases services. DBAs used to working with SQL Server, will find them familiar yet far more easy to set up and use than SQL Server on-premises. Many traditional DBA tasks like space allocation, backup and recovery are simply handled automatically by the platform. At the same time, not having to worry about the operating system, hypervisor, or thread count can certainly simplify performance management.
However, that should not make us complacent. The performance of any database as a service is inextricably linked to cost. A poorly optimized workload can cause the provisioning of extra resources. It is great to be able to scale automatically to stay within SLA, but this costs money. If left unchecked it can accumulate fast and hit hard on your company's bottom line. The performance challenge has evolved with the database as a service, but it certainly has not gone away.
Join this session to learn how managing performance is even more critical with Azure SQL DB and Azure Managed Instance. Learn what key performance indicators are most important, what auto-tuning really means and get some tools to help you identify performance issues and correctly size your database.
