Get the “how-to” in this deep-dive workshop for understanding and working with many of the Windows Azure Data Services.
This workshop will begin by providing an overview of the different data services available on the Windows Azure platform.
We’ll take a deep, individual look at each of the data services, including:
Availability and Scale
Dive into the methods and approaches for implementing high-availability and scalability in Windows Azure for both the application
and the database, as well as how Windows Azure provides the administration capabilities for our Windows Azure cloud solution.
We’ll look at Hybrid scenarios, including the use of SQL Server in Virtual Machines to complement the PaaS solution to leverage
the needed Business Intelligence stack
Performance and Administration
We’ll look at performance and query tuning best practices for Windows Azure SQL Database, and how many of the DBA
responsibilities apply in a cloud environment.
We’ll wrap up the day by looking at SQL Server in a Windows Azure virtual machine, including how to install and configure High
Availability and Disaster Recovery.
