Running SQL Server in AWS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's largest public cloud hosting provider with many companies successfully running SQL server on AWS infrastructure. In this session, we explore the options available to you for running SQL server in AWS, either as an RDS managed service or using dedicated EC2 instances. We document the different storage options, HA strategies, security and maintenance caveats to be aware of. We will also detail various approaches to licensing you can take when running SQL server in AWS.

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!
