Sure, the cloud is a cheap and easy way to spin up more servers and spin up more servers faster, but what do you do when performance problems hit? There’s no SAN team to blame and no infrastructure team to move you to a new server. This talk will expose some common performance complaints about moving SQL Server to the cloud and provide explanations and mitigations to keep you floating along on cloud 9.
This talk is for DBAs, developers, and managers who are considering moving their infrastructure into EC2. If you’re already running in EC2 and you haven’t solved some of your performance problems, this might help you out too, but I wouldn’t count on it.
To learn more, check out Jeremiah’s post on Configuring SQL Server in EC2. It covers who’s deploying EC2 VMs with SQL, what problems they’re running into, and how to improve performance.
