As a shared database infrastructure in the cloud, SQL Azure provides the opportunity for creating large workloads in a scalable and reliable environment. In this session we will cover:

  • The considerations you should take and describe the methodology we use to make these design decisions.
  • When to use a singleinstance, when to use federations, when to use table/blob storage to potentially offload historical data For these all important questions we will walk through a number of examples to show how we have made the trade-offs and why The techniques and methodology we use to monitor SQL Azure performance and describe how you can leverage your on-premise skills in the cloud.
