Do you want to learn how databases in Azure are more than SQL Server? In a recent webinar, Steve Hughes, reviews Azure’s database offerings. If you go to the Microsoft Azure site and open the database bucket, you’ll see quite a few database offerings from Microsoft. This webinar will look at use cases and costs around these, as well as related functionality.
Steve approaches this overview by looking at “the 3 Ps” - Purpose, Platform & Pennies - of each offering.
- Purpose – Why would you choose a product? What value is it to you? What are common uses (including some examples of how we have used a product in our engagements)?
- Platform – How is it delivered to you (PaaS, SaaS, IaaS)? What are the strengths that come from the platform it’s sitting on?
- Pennies – How is it charged? The cost varies a lot depending on use cases, so not much time is spent on actual cost as you should use the pricing calculator based on your scenario, but you’ll get a clear idea of how an offering is charged.
This webinar will cover each of the 10 Azure database offerings:
- Cosmos DB
- Azure SQL Database
- Azure Database for MySQL, PostgreSQL and for Maria DB
- SQL Server on Virtual Machines
- Azure Database Migration Service
- Azure Cache for Redis
- SQL Server Stretch Database
- Table Storage
