Microsoft Virtual Academy: Cloud On Your terms with SQL server 2012 : Scale on demand (Module 3) - Beyond the Hype - Hybrid Solutions for On-Premise and In-Cloud Database Applications


About This Video

Despite all the hype, it’s rare for a business to actually “move” an application directly to the cloud. The cost, risk and effort aren’t usually worth the benefit of what you gain. Security considerations, performance, and control are just a few of the reasons that many applications need to stay in your datacenter. But there are times when including a function from the cloud makes a ton of business sense, either to extend part of your internal applications to remote workers, customers or partners, or to act as a HA/DR solution.  In this session, Buck Woody (Microsoft Senior Technology Specialist on Distributed Computing) will talk about how you can embrace Cloud on Your Terms through Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Windows and SQL Azure architectures, and the considerations for creating a hybrid architecture across on-premise databases and cloud technologies. 

You'll learn:

  • How to create a decision matrix for which elements can be extended to the cloud
  • A Windows and SQL Azure technology overview, code name Juneau, and DAC Fx
  • Component options for hybrid solutions, including:
    • SharePoint
    • Biztalk
    • .NET applications
  • Non-Microsoft languages and technologies
  • Other RDBMS’s
