The Talk

Deploying or moving a SQL Server instance or database to the cloud is more complicated than dealing with an on-premise/datacentre infrastructure. While more complicated it has recently moved from the realms of super specialization and the cloud providers are working steadily on improving the experience.

This talk will attempt to demystify what it takes to achieve a deployment/move based on our experiences. There is a strong flavour of Amazon Web Services – as this is what I am most familiar with – but all concepts are applicable to all cloud platforms.

This session concentrates on the infrastructure of deploying an instance/database in the cloud and will not deal directly with particular application issues; some of these will of course be mentioned as part of the talk.

The Speaker

Deiric Lynch started his database career with Microsoft in the early 90’s as the first DBA working with SQL Server 4.2 on O/S2. He set up the database operations team and was part of the infrastructure team that consolidated Microsoft’s IT infrastructure into the European operations Centre in Sandyford. Deiric left Microsoft for a period working as a Sybase database consultant specializing in P&T and Replication and speaking at international events. In May 2000 Deiric was a founding member of DNM Technology. In the past several years Deiric has re-concentrated on Microsoft SQL Server with Cloud deployments and use of PowerShell being two of his more recent projects.
