Going back to SQL Saturday Nashville for my fourth straight year. But, hot of the presses, I’m bringing a brand new presentation. Well, at least hot off the PowerPoint slide.
Cloudy with A Chance of Data. This course is intended as an Introductory look at the Cloud and Azure Data Services. We begin our session explaining what the cloud is and the differences between Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Then we turn our attention to Azure and the Microsoft Cloud Data Platform to see what solutions are available for Data Archtitects, Developers, and Administrators. Finally, we close the session with a tour of SQL Server in an Azure Virtual Machine as well as an Azure SQL Database. But if you can’t wait, well I already have the slides ready and you can download them here. (Some slides subject to change.)
