SQL Server is known for its innovation, performance, and powerful easy-to-use tools – as well as security and high availability for mission critical workloads. Notable releases like SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 have likely worked well for you, but with the end of support life looming in July 2019, what are your next steps? This session will walk you through practical options for modernizing older releases of SQL Server. There are lots of choices and the engineers at Microsoft are here to guide you and find the right solutions to help you modernize your systems. In this full day session, Bob and the Microsoft engineering team will go over the benefits of newest releases, such as SQL Server 2016 and 2017, that provide built-in features for performance, intelligent diagnostics, security, HADR, and Machine Learning – now accessible on Linux and Docker containers. Plus, they’ll also go in-depth on Azure Managed Instance, a new cloud PaaS offering that makes moving to Azure far easier for the data professional. If you are using an older release of SQL Server and need a detailed plan to modernize to the latest products and services, this session is for you. Join Bob Ward, the Tiger Team, and top CSS Escalation Engineers for a day of learning, covering: • Your choices for modernizing. • Tools and techniques for migration. • Security, availability and performance benefits of the latest releases. • Tools they use for troubleshooting common issues around performance and the storage engine. This session will be full of technical details on all of these topics plus demos and samples you can take with you. We promise you will walk away with the technical expertise you need to make an immediate impact in your organization.
