Azure SQL Database-How to keep your business running when disaster strikes?

Azure SQL Database is a relational database-as-a-service (DBaaS) based on the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server Database Engine. You can build a data-driven applications and websites in the programming language of your choice, without needing to manage infrastructure. While considering Azure SQL Database two of the most important questions you need to answer is what are my options for business continuity and how to implement these options? In this demo intensive session, I will talk about five specific options and show you how to implement those. You will walk out of this session equipped with knowledge and scripts to implement appropriate High Availability and Disaster Recovery solution for your Azure SQL Database.

Your AG might not be as “Available” as you think

You’ve got an availability group! Good for you! It’s set up all nice and shiny with all the settings configured just right for maximum availability, and the dashboard says “Synchronized.” But wait, did you know someone added a new job to your primary server last week but didn’t add it to your secondary? Or what about the new linked server that was added on your readable secondary to aid with the reports accounting was asking for…did anyone add it to the primary? An availability group will keep all of your database objects synchronized, but server-level objects are often overlooked. In this session I’ll show you how to set up a reporting tool that will show you which objects are out of sync so that you can correct them, including a query that will let you compare both objects so you can see what’s different.
