Azure Best Practices After the Lift & Shift

Michael Wall, Senior DBA Great Western Malting

Going to the Cloud can be a very scary proposition for most companies, but a lot of your fears can be mitigated as long as you prepare for the experience. Come learn with me and learn from my experiences as we cover the preparatory steps that can be taken to improve the initial experience. After that, we will be listing out the general tasks that need to be setup in order to maintain an expected level of performance. Next, we will be working on how to improve performance on an existing hybrid VM running SQL Server. Finally, we will discuss some of settings and roles that you will want to have in the Azure Portal to allow you to monitor your well-performing Azure instance. Bring your questions!

About Michael:
Michael Wall has been a Database Administrator since he was asked if he wanted to be one after successfully managing the Y2K upgrade project on over fifty UNIX servers. Immediately thrust into a major Oracle upgrade project, he has since then managed multiple challenges and now is the sole DBA for a global food processing company responsible for both SQL Server and Ingres databases. He has presented at multiple PASS User Groups and at SQL Saturdays and is in the leadership group for Oregon SQL. He has been on the planning team for a number of SQL Saturdays and plans to keep helping as much as he can!
