Azure SQL DB Features to Make Our Lives Easier

Cloud services are now changing the dynamics of organizations and one of the new services that is being widely recognized nowadays is Database as a Service (DBaaS). The focus of this session is to understanding how Microsoft DBaaS provides a flexible, scalable and on-demand platform that also delivers self-service and easy management; so you can decide whether it is suitable for your organization. I will demonstrate how to tune database performance and how it works with the Stretch Database feature from SQL Server 2016 . This session is for Developers, Database Administrators and Decision Makers.
