Level Up Your Cloud Infrastructure Skills

Think infrastructure in the cloud is still just for sysadmins? Think again! As your organization moves into the cloud, infrastructure skills are more important than ever for DBAs to master. Expert knowledge of cloud-related infrastructure will help you maintain performance and availability for databases in the cloud. For example, know what an IOP is? How many does your database consume during a given day? Properly sizing a cloud database depends on your knowledge of this metric. Failure to properly configure storage performance at the time of deployment will slow down your SQL Server considerably. Come learn many of the key cloud infrastructure points that you should master as the DBA role continues to evolve!

Welcome

The Virtualization Virtual Group is dedicated to better management of SQL Servers in virtual environments like Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere.  We:

  • Help the community by producing things like monthly training webcasts, a centralized list of helpful virtualization-savvy administrators, and a periodic report of what works well under virtualization and what isn't quite working yet.

  • Help virtualization vendors by getting training and configuration information out to the people who need it, and helping the vendors build a better product with our feedback.

  • Help PASS management by building assets that PASS can leverage (like a library of training content) and showing that PASS solves real DBA problems.


Call To Speakers!

If you would like to give a presentation to the group, please send an email along with an abstract.
