In this talk, I will share my experience in creating and running Azure SQL Database, a large cloud scale service powered by SQL Server technologies. This presentation will provide an outline of the scenarios and requirements for a database service.
Polybase is one of the most exciting, innovative features in PDW; enabling transparent data integration with Hadoop's distributed file system (HDFS) and soon Windows Azure Storage Blobs (WASB). See it in action.
Microsoft is moving to the cloud and SQL Server 2014 is the first release with features designed specifically to extend your datacentre into the cloud. In this session we'll look at these features with end-to-end demos, discussions and scenarios so you can understand what the future could look like in your own SQL Server environment.
Firstly we will show off Microsoft's enhancements to the Hadoop open source stack with HDInsight showing you how easy it is to get started with Hadoop. Secondly we'll explore an interesting big data use case
In one hour we will take a sample ecommerce application and database, show tools available for both schema and data migration and the demo performance, scalability and monitoring impacts.
Once you've decided to move to Azure with any of your databases, you're going to need to know how they're performing, this session shows you.
This session will discuss the recommended approaches and best practices for partitioning and scaling Windows Azure SQL Database, allowing you to fully leverage the managed relational database service and take advantage of massive scale-out scenarios.
The way our data will be stored is changing and it's all about your network. Come find out why CSVs, SMB, Windows Scale Out File Servers, fast networks, and maybe even the cloud are in your future.
This session will focus on 5 great hybrid cloud features available in SQL Server 2014 that show how you can use these features to lower your TCO and leverage the cloud to provide new disaster recovery and backup solutions.
While there are many similarities between SQL Server and SQL Azure, there are different kinds of applications that are easier to build in one or the other. One of the major differences relates to how to build an application that “scales”. This presentation will provide an introduction into the difference between scale-up (SQL Server) and scale-out (SQL Azure) architectures and give you a primer on how you can build a large, Internet-facing service that can scale to arbitrarily large sizes on commodity hardware. This talk is targeted at SQL Server practitioners to give them a working knowledge of how the two platforms differ based on Microsoft’s experiences with its largest Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) customers running on SQL Azure.
