Hybrid Cloud Workloads: SQL

Most applications have some key challenges, such as high efficiency, business value, complex hardware configurations, massive peaks on demand, and complying with industry and corporate regulations. Considering all these factors and building an enterprise-grade technology can be very challenging. Microsoft Hybrid Cloud Strategy provides support for traditional, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud environments to overcome these key challenges. When your business requires a flexible IT infrastructure that can scale on demand, you can build a private cloud in your data center or a public cloud in Windows Azure global data centers. When you extend your data center to meet the public cloud, you build a hybrid cloud model. This course will examine how we deploy and manage SQL Databases in a Hybrid Cloud environment.
