Intro to Azure from a DBA's Perspective - How to Cover Your a.a.s.

  • Patrick Hays Learning Center (map)
  • 2700 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 2600
  • Sacramento, CA 95833
  • 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
  • RSVP via Meetup

Intro to Azure from a DBA's Perspective - How to Cover Your a.a.s. - Dan Hess Head in the "cloud"? Looking for a "cloud" with a silver lining? There are many clichés that can be used when talking about "cloud" technology but really, how does Microsoft's "cloud" offering, called Azure, actually work? Let's take a look at some basics and maybe even take a dive into the deep end. We'll look at terminology ("subscriptions", "Infrastructure as a service", "resource manager" etc.), how to create various resources (virtual machines, databases, virtual networks etc.) and maybe even log into a "cloud" database. I'll present a solid foundation that will enable you to get comfortable with the technology and allow you to expand your "cloud" skills. Dan Hess has been in IT since 1997, graduating from California State University, Chico with a computer science degree. He's been focused on SQL Server since 2007 when he was given the "accidental DBA" title. After learning to swim in the deep end and moving jobs to Sacramento, he saw the need to help others who were in a similar position and helped to form the Sacramento SQL Server user group. Database administration is his primary focus.
