SQL Azure: Ten things every decision maker should know

SQL Azure: what is it and why should you care about it? What
can it do for you and when you should consider using it? Here are ten good
reasons why, in certain cases, it may be the way to go. In this quick talk I
will cover what types of databases could make use of SQL Azure and dispel some
common misconceptions around it.

Highly available by default and geographically dispersed, there are numerous scenarios when you could make use of SQL Azure, either with Windows SQL Database or SQL Azure VMs. The cloud is here, so far better to know how you could use it than to ignore it!

    A former programmer, James to the dark side over thirteen years ago as he thought SQL Server would offer more of a challenge - and it did not disappoint! Through versions 7 to 2012 - with a side order of SQL Azure - he ave worked solidly with SQL Server. He also adores C# and BI but always find himself coming back to his first love, the database engine. Automation makes him smile and he is happiest when deep in the mire, under pressure, and with numerous seemingly impossible tasks to do in a hurry.

    He is currently juggling moving a major client’s in-house system over to an SaaS model utilising SQL Azure, EF5+, and MVC, as well as more traditional DBA, SSIS, and SSAS work. MCM. SSDT junkie.
