SQL Server’s broad popularity is in part driven by how easy it is to install, configure, and manage. But that can have a downside too – server sprawl. Consequently, there comes a time for most organizations to rein in the sprawl, but we have new options now – cloud, whether that is AWS or Microsoft Azure. When consolidating, you will get benefits ranging from reducing costs for software licenses, OpEx rather than CapEx budgeting, no hardware to manage, software that is always up-to-date and fully patched, but also for reduced management needs and organizational complexity.
Every big and complex IT project deserves time and attention to planning for optimal outcomes, and a consolidation is no different. In this webinar, the panel will focus on consolidating SQL Server environments from on-premises environments into either the Amazon or Microsoft cloud. The agenda include topics like:
Introduction to the cloud, both AWS and Azure
Licensing costs and alternatives, plus partial cloud implementations
Issues of downtime, high availability, and parallel processing while transitioning from on-prem to the cloud
Practical tips and tricks when conducting the consolidation, such as when NOT to move to the cloud
Steps to take in advance of a move to the cloud due to different costing structure
This session will help you advance your skills with managing an unruly and growing environment. By teaching you the major considerations when planning a database cloud consolidation project, you face less problems and enjoy a faster and more productive consolidation of your environment with less hardware to manage and even reducing your licensing requirements.
