Don’t fly blind in the cloud

Safely navigate the costs and risks of modern database management

Database administration is becoming increasingly complex – from managing on-premises SQL Server databases to Azure SQL DB, AWS and all other cloud service providers. The majority of data managers are now piloting their way through new cloud initiatives. Of those who haven’t launched their cloud strategy yet, most plan to lift off soon. And while new frontiers in database flexibility and cost reduction hold promise, many organizations are crashing into a shocking reality: successfully navigating the cloud requires more visibility than they’d anticipated.

In 2018, a team of developers at a well-known computer software company accidentally ran up $500,000 in cloud costs – in a single week! And they’re not alone, as more and more organizations are shocked by skyrocketing cloud costs. To avoid scary bumps along your cloud journey, review the safety materials below. You’ll learn how to survive the impact of new trends in cloud database management, streamline Azure SQL DB management and more.
