November 2013 QLD SQL Server User Group – Rob Risetto

SQL in the Cloud

Quite often these days IT Manager are being asked by their CEOs to consider the Cloud for new applications, testing infrastructure or avoiding the capital costs of replacement server hardware. We all know of Microsoft offerings in this space but the current leading player, as acknowledged by Gartner, is Amazon Web Services (AWS).

AWS provides a rich set of building block services and automation to support applications and database systems in the cloud. As you might expect there are a number of considerations and gotchas when moving database systems to the AWS cloud.

In this session Rob will explore the SQL Server offerings available in AWS and highlight the type of database applications that are candidates for a move to the AWS cloud. Rob will also walk through the AWS options to maximise SQL Server performance and high availability, enable a robust database backup/disaster recovery strategy and promote security. The session will also cover SQL Server licensing implications and a general overview of the AWS costing model for SQL Server deployments.

Rob will also provide insights into how the coming SQL Server 2014 on AWS will be a marriage made in heaven.
