The Long Session
Shannon Lowder will present: OnPremise to Azure
During this talk I’ll walk you through the process actually used to migrate a client’s systems from hosted in a company closet to multiple Microsoft Azure data centers. Along the way we’ll discuss the planning that went into the migration, the testing we went through, the pain points we hit, all the way to up and running in the cloud. This session covers the roadmap, we won’t go through the actual migration itself…that took almost a year to complete.
Look no further for expertise in: Business Analysis to gather the business requirements for the database; Database Architecting to design the logical design of the database; Database Development to actually build the objects needed by the business logic; finally, Database Administration to keep the database running in top form, and making sure there is a disaster recovery plan.
