"5 Critical Considerations when Moving to the Cloud"

Migrating an existing on-premises SQL Server application to the cloud can be a daunting task that consists of many complicated steps. In this session, we will focus on what is perhaps the MOST important step of the process – those that lead up to the actual move to the cloud. 

We will dive deep into the most critical considerations for moving your data and databases into the cloud, whether you use Microsoft Azure, Amazon, or another cloud provider.

"Ten Surprising Performance Killers on Microsoft SQL Server"

Microsoft SQL Server is among the most popular and widely used data platforms of all time with a reputation for resilience, performance, and ease of administration. But wait - performance killers are lurking deep inside your SQL Servers! Learn about these performance killers that most DBAs and Devs are unaware of in this demo-packed session. We will cover a variety of significant issues, ranging from server-side OS settings, file layout, memory settings, and database design to coding issues like data types and cursors.
