Cloud Database Scalability - Designing and Building for Scale in Windows Azure SQL Database

Sign in to queue

Description

Cloud computing is distributed computing which requires thoughtful planning and delivery regardless of the platform choice. Because of the inherent complexity of running services at scale, it is important to understand the behaviour and performance of the cloud platform in which a database is hosted to match business performance and scale expectations and requirements. The keyword is Elasticity: gaining access to capacity faster. This session will look at the best practices and patterns for building scalable database tiers in the cloud by discussing scale-up vs. scale-out models and how greater scalability and performance can be achieved through horizontal partitioning. This session will cover topics such as scale-first design principles, dealing with identity generation, and distributed/fan-out queries across partitions._x000D_
