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.
Building a global scale telemetry pipeline used to be the preserve of the largest internet companies, but today it is common for even moderately sized businesses to receive a high volume of telemetry across the world. The cloud and Internet of Things are making this even more common. This session will cover building a global scale telemetry pipeline on Azure Event Hubs and including how to size and plan for your platform. We will show and discus how we see customers successfully create telemetry pipelines that can handle billions of events per day all around the world. Speaker: Dan Rosanova
