Even though the cloud provides elastic scale and seemingly infinite resources, you still have to design, monitor and tune performance. Microsoft Azure SQL Database has architectural differences from SQL Server and understanding how these can impact performance is critical. In this session, Microsoft Azure MVP, Eric D. Boyd, will show you how you can identify bottlenecks and the cause of performance problems in SQL Database. This session will introduce you to the tools you can use to investigate throttling, connection events and resources, and poorly performing queries such as dynamic management objects (DMVs and DMFs) and cloud-based tools in Microsoft Azure. You will also learn how to appropriately handle throttling in your applications and scale by partitioning databases.
Apps should be tested before submission. Every app is unique, so a unique test plan should be created to test the components of each app. When creating the test plan, a few factors should be taken into account: app modules; how those modules interact within the app and in which order they are initialized; and which modules are required for the app to run. Based on this info, the modules should be tested. In this session, Mickey talks about how, through testing, you can ensure the highest quality for your app.
Even though you're watching this on-demand, Mickey wants to help. Post your questions, comments, etc below or tweet it, mentioning @cdndevs.
