Getting started with SQL Azure Database: What you need to know - Jim Donahoe

  • In-Person @ Microsoft MTC Chevy Chase, Maryland, United States (map)
  • 18:30 - 21:00 (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)
  • Language: English

Azure SQL Database offers a way quickly spin up new databases with minimal management requirements. However, the number of differences between on-premises SQL Server and Azure SQL Database can be overwhelming. Even worse, with DBaaS it’s not clear who is responsible for what anymore. In this session, we will cover all the basic steps of getting your first Azure SQL Database instance spun up. We’ll cover common gotchas, like firewall settings and resource locks. We’ll also dive into some more advanced options with templates, allowing you to make your processes reproducible. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand if Azure SQL Database is the right choice for you and your needs. You’ll understand how it can simplify management and allow you to scale easily. Finally, you’ll have the confidence to go and create your own instance with ease. PASSDC is very proud to be able to present this session from Jim. Please note that Jim's presentation will be done remotely. (We do not have a shareable link so to view it you must attend the actual meeting). Jim is a Cloud Solutions Architect(Azure) with RDX. He lives in Pittsburgh in a small suburb. He loves working with all things Azure(ARM templates, DBaaS, SQL on IaaS). He is an avid collector of retro video games (ask him to share his pictures of his game room)! He is a member of the Idera ACE program for 2018 Remember to bring your questions and be ready to build your network of SQL Server peers! We are currently accepting submissions to speak!
