Yashesvi Sharma joins Scott Hanselman to discuss reserved virtual machine instances and how the reservation you buy can apply to other virtual machines (VMs) sizes in the same size series group. This ensures that you maximize your discounts and make reservation management easier. Also, you can now save even more by purchasing reservations for SQL Database, Azure Cosmos DB, and SUSE Linux usage on Azure.For more information:What are Azure Reservations?Virtual machine size flexibility with Reserved VM InstancesAzure Reserved VM Instances (RIs) overviewAzure SQL Database pricingAzure Cosmos DB pricingCreate a free account (Azure)

Having implemented Azure SQL Data Warehouse solutions for dozens of clients, here are the lessons learned we wish we had known several years ago. Learn a great way to make your loads run twice as long. Learn the best ways to make columnstores perform as slowly as molasses in January. Take a visit to the distribution key hall of shame. We review some common mistakes, understand what’s happening under the covers, then show the best practice to fix the problem.
Azure SQL Database and managed instances allow you build globally scalable applications with extremely low latency. Azure SQL Database is the best cloud database offering in market. In this session, we take a detailed look at the migration lifecycle and show you how we have made it easy to migrate SQL Server and Oracle instances to Microsoft Azure by using the Azure Database Migration Service and related tools. We also cover most commonly seen migration blocking scenarios and demonstrate how our service can unblock your migration to Azure SQL Databases. We also deep dive into how to perform scale migrations using our CLI components.
Any SQL Server solution running production workload needs to be configured for business continuity and disaster recovery. Since its release, Always On Availability Groups have become the default standard for all SQL Server deployments. Customers use Always On Availability Groups to provide varying levels of HA and DR support for their SQL Server deployments across different platforms, including containers. In this session, we go over the details of how to deploy and configure a highly available SQL Server solution using Availability Groups on containers in a Kubernetes cluster.
Azure SQL Database built-in intelligence helps you excel and optimize your database security and performance. Learn how Azure SQL Database, the most intelligent cloud database, can help ensure your database is always secure and performing at its best, tailored to your data and workload. The session covers advanced security and performance features, including Azure SQL Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for discovering and classifying sensitive data, remediating vulnerabilities and detecting anomalous activities that could indicate a threat to your database. Intelligent performance features cover at-scale monitoring with Azure SQL Analytics, Automatic tuning and Intelligent Insights for accelerating your workload with zero effort on your part.
Hear RubiKloud, our partner, talk about how they leverage our modern data warehousing solution to enhance the experience of their retail customers. We talk at depth about the various choices, decision factors and optimizations, both from a technical and organizational standpoint. This session talks about best practices in building a modern data warehouse in the cloud, with cloud native services, and extending with open source based analytics layers to derive insights from any data in any form. It is one thing hearing about the technology, and a completely different one hearing about solution implementation—and this session does justice to both.
Are you looking to get started evaluating Azure SQL Database Managed Instance? Migrating to Managed Instance has been simplified by providing a direct path from on-premises SQL Server. This session covers multiple methods of migrating individual databases as well as multiple on-premises instances to Managed Instance. Come see firsthand how easy it is to migrate an on-premises SQL Server database to an Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.
Want to learn how artificial intelligence can help optimize a database by providing reliable, actionable recommendations while improving performance and reducing cloud costs? Microsoft Core Services Engineering & Operations (CSEO) experts—the pros who run the critical products and services that power Microsoft—discuss how Azure SQL Database intelligent insights helped the Microsoft enterprise achieve better performance at scale for optimal cost—lessons learned by running thousands of SQL databases and fine tuning independent databases workloads for better performance. We also share how CSEO experts helped fine tune the product algorithms to ensure the resulting recommendations are realistic and actionable.
This session presents how to migrate, replicate, and synchronize data between SQL Server, SQL VM, Azure SQL Database, and Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, across on-premises, Microsoft Azure, and other cloud platforms to build a real hybrid data platform. We introduce our current technology choices, deep dive in customer scenarios, and use cases, and share product roadmap.
