July 2018 WISSUG meeting

Understanding options for SQL Server workloads in the Azure cloud

Presented by: David Levy (Microsoft)

Are you curious as to what your options are for moving you SQL Server workload to the cloud?

Come spend 90 minutes with David Levy from Microsoft, as he walks you through the various

options for SQL Server technologies delivered as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform

as a Service (PaaS). He will also discuss migration technologies to help you with the move.

David Levy (Microsoft)    

David Levy is a developer turned DBA. He began his career in 2000 after graduation from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Operations Management and Information Systems with an Emphasis in Information Systems. After several years of increasingly complex development work, David moved into a support role that allowed him to indulge his interest in quick fix engineering. In this role he had the opportunity to tune a critical business query reducing the run time from 6 minutes to a few seconds. At this point it was decided that David should move to the database team to work on other poorly performing queries as well as to head off any future issues. In this new role David worked with the development teams of the company to tune the existing workloads while developing coding standards

and a code review process. During this time he developed the skills and experience to allow him to move into a role as a Premier Field Engineer at Microsoft, working with Microsoft customers to ensure they have the best possible experience with SQL Server through a mix of proactive education and mentoring and reactive assistance with system issues. After 5 years as a Field Engineer David became a Technical Solution Professional. In his current role David assists customers in addressing business challenges with an eye toward digital transformation and disruptive uses of Microsoft technologies.
