Best Practices for Designing Your Cloud-Based, Data-Tier Strategy
This talk explains how to transition from a “traditional on-premises” data tier model to one that leverages the unique capabilities of the cloud. Come see how the transition from scale-up to scale-out works across a range of data services now offered from Microsoft (Relational, NoSQL, Microsoft Azure Storage, and Search) and how to look at extracting value from your data using machine learning technologies and big-data solutions. This talk covers lessons learned from running some of the largest Microsoft services in the cloud (parts of Visual Studio Online, Office 365, Bing, etc.), and shows you how you can apply the same techniques to build your own cloud data tier that works at massive scales.
