1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT / 10:00 am – 11:00 am PDT
Many IT professionals are finding themselves at a critical point in their business's growth. They want to reduce costs and improve data availability without maintaining additional infrastructure. As a result, many are considering deploying Microsoft SQL Server instances in the cloud. Part of the appeal of the cloud is that it allows you to only pay for what you need. However, moving to the cloud can still be complex and costly with the 1:1 mapping of virtual machines (VMs) to SQL Server instances. This inefficient mapping can lead to debilitating sprawl and present significant challenges for maintaining availability and performance.
This live webinar will explore how to run SQL Server in the cloud and reduce the number of VMs, decrease SQL Server licensing fees and maintain application availability—all without hiring more IT staff or outspending the budget. Specifically, you will learn how CaaS for SQL Server enables IT professionals to focus on value-added application and business process layers while achieving:
- A 3-4x smaller OS footprint
- Built-in high availability (HA) with simplified management
- Quality of Service (QoS) controls for service level agreement (SLA) assurance
- The lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) possible
