Come join us for supper once a month to meet other QC area DBAs, developers, and people interested in the data platform and to learn about a topic of interest.

Dynamic Management Views and functions allow you to easily see exactly what is happening inside your SQL Server instances and databases with a high level of detail. You can discover your top wait types, most CPU intensive stored procedures, find missing indexes, and identify unused indexes, to name just a few examples. This session presents, demonstrates and explains a complete set of diagnostic DMV queries that you can easily use to detect and diagnose configuration and performance issues in your SQL Server instances and databases. This session goes into exhaustive detail on how to interpret the results of each of the diagnostic queries, including relevant background information on how to properly configure your hardware, storage subsystem, operating system, SQL Server instance and databases in order to avoid performance and scalability issues.
Tim Radney from SQL Skills will present:
Have you been hearing about Azure Managed Instances and want to know what all the fuss is about? Come see how Managed Instances is changing how we think about cloud databases. Managed Instances can be considered a hybrid of Azure SQL Database and on-premises SQL Server with all the awesome benefits of Platform as a Service. You’ll get to see first-hand how easy it is to migrate databases from on-premises to a Managed Instance. We’ll explore the differences between Azure SQL Database, Managed Instances, and SQL Server on an Azure VM to help you determine what is the best fit for your organization. If you’ve been considering Azure for your organization, this session is for you!
