Performance Tuning in Azure Database with John Sterrett


Performance Tuning in Azure Database

Have you been interested to see how you can baseline performance and improve performance with an Azure SQL Database? If so, this hour session is for you. In this course, you will learn how Azure measures performance with DTU's. You will learn the secret sauce and how to monitor changes in performance to determine if you should pay more or less for the right performance tier for your workload. You will see how DTU usage can impact data loads, migrations, and your daily workload. You will also see which existing tools and processes you can leverage from managing on-premises instances to managing Azure SQL Databases. You will know which ones that need some tweaks and others that need no changes to help you monitor performance. Finally, you will learn new features in Azure SQL Databases that will help you be an Azure Performance Tuning Rockstar for your company!
