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.
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.
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.
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.
Just because you're using an Azure SQL database does not mean you can avoid tuning queries. This session will introduce you to the tools you have available to identify poor performing queries, understand, and fix them. All in the cloud.
In this session we are going to look at the some of the flavours of SQL in Azure, namely Windows Azure Database and SQL on IaaS. We will discuss the differences between them, look at what this means from a DBA stand point
Ewan Fairweather and Silvano Coriani from the SQL CAT team will take you on a tour of the new features that make up the Windows Azure Virtual Machines and Virtual Networks running SQL Server 2012 in a Virtual Machine.
This session provides an architectural blueprint to deploying disaster recovery solutions combining on-premise and Windows Azure cloud technologies. The session looks at a design pattern to solve a long standing and often expensive issue of DR.
We aim to cover the fundamental concepts that you should know on the Cloud and Windows Azure. In this demo based hour we will step through building Azure applications, deploying and managing them and what storage choices you will face.
