Azure Best Practices for Lift and Shift into a Hybrid VM in Azure

Michael Wall, Senior DBA Great Western Malting

Going to the Cloud can be a very scary proposition for most companies, but a lot of your fears can be mitigated as long as you prepare for the experience. Come learn with me and learn from my experiences as we cover the preparatory steps that can be taken to improve the initial experience. After that, we will be listing out the general tasks that need to be setup in order to maintain an expected level of performance. Next, we will be working on how to improve performance on an existing hybrid VM running SQL Server. Finally, we will discuss some of settings and roles that you will want to have in the Azure Portal to allow you to monitor your well-performing Azure instance. Bring your questions! Note, this session will exclusively deal with issues on a hybrid VM running SQL Server in Azure. We may cover general issues that affect SQL Azure instances such as storage issues.

About Michael :
Michael Wall has been a Database Administrator since he was asked if he wanted to be one after successfully managing the Y2K upgrade project on over fifty UNIX servers. Immediately thrust into a major Oracle upgrade project, he has since then managed multiple challenges and now is the sole DBA for a global food processing company responsible for both SQL Server and Ingres databases. He was honored to speak at PASS Summit in 2018 and hopes to have the experience again! He is currently very active in his SQL Server community (PACNW) both as a presenter and assisting with multiple SQL Saturdays. Having experienced the Power BI community, he has now gone back to basics and is working with his VAXen at work again.
