Presentation description: "In the not too distant past Azure SQL Database was known to many as just 'cloud-based SQL Server' without the full features needed to encourage a move to it from on-premises SQL Server. Times have changed! Azure SQL Database, with the addition of deployment models like Managed Instance and storage technologies like Hyperscale, has matured into a formidable competitor in the PaaS database space. Join me as I walk you through how these technologies work behind the scenes, what options that gives you as you and your company consider migration, and how the Azure SQL Database family has given companies a powerful platform to store and use their data without much of the management overhead and hassle."

Featured Presentation

Azure SQL Database A to Z: More Than Meets The Eye

Speaker: Matt Gordon, Architect Insight Digital Innovation

Summary: In the not too distant past Azure SQL Database was known to many as just 'cloud-based SQL Server' without the full features needed to encourage a move to it from on-premises SQL Server. Times have changed! Azure SQL Database, with the addition of deployment models like Managed Instance and storage technologies like Hyperscale, has matured into a formidable competitor in the PaaS database space. Join me as I walk you through how these technologies work behind the scenes, what options that gives you as you and your company consider migration, and how the Azure SQL Database family has given companies a powerful platform to store and use their data without much of the management overhead and hassle.
