SQL Server Cloud Optimization Strategies - Costs, Licensing and Infrastructure

As more businesses move their workloads to the cloud, optimizing costs in the cloud has become a top priority. One of the most significant costs associated with running SQL Server workloads on AWS is licensing.

In this session, we will discuss how to optimize costs on AWS by optimizing SQL Server licensing and infrastructure. We will cover licensing options available on AWS, and strategies for license optimization, including bringing your own licenses, licensing at the physical core level, and SQL Server consolidation. We will also discuss infrastructure strategies such as optimizing CPU usage and modernizing legacy applications.

By carefully considering these strategies, businesses can achieve their cost optimization goals while maintaining the functionality and performance they need to run their workloads on AWS.

Attend this session to:

  1. Understand licensing options for running SQL Server workloads on AWS and how to optimize licensing costs.
  2. Learn strategies for optimizing SQL Server infrastructure, including instance rightsizing, CPU optimization, and modernization.
  3. Gain practical knowledge on how to assess SQL Server workloads and implement cost optimization strategies to achieve the best possible value from your licensing investment.
