現在只要透過 SQL Server 的好夥伴 System Center 以及 SQL Server 管理套件，可以快速提供管理者所需的資料庫效能、可用性、組態監控、效能資料蒐集等資訊。當 DB 發生問題時 System Center 會主動通知管理者並告知問題所在，協助管理者在最短時間內排除障礙。同時還包含了可自訂的儀表板檢視、圖表檢視以及問題解決知識庫，加上各種豐富的報表，讓 DBA 一手掌握所有狀況! 即時是管理不同版本的 SQL Server，System Center 也能輕鬆做到。此外，當遇到長時間執行的交易問題時，System Center 也能辨別出是哪支程式的 SQL 語法所造成，真正釐清問題的所在!
When designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
