Topic: Tales from Building a SQL Server Data Warehouse in Azure
Session Description: In this session, we share our experiences and lessons learned from a recent migration to Azure for a SQL Server data warehousing environment. We begin with sharing our reasoning for running SQL Server in a VM vs. Azure SQLDB vs. Azure SQLDW. We will review our carefully-selected naming conventions, and how we structured development, test, and production within subscriptions and resource groups. Throughout the session we'll cover key decisions to be made during planning and setup, and a few gotchas to watch out for.
