Online event

* Online Session* Click link to join at 18:30

Migrating you on-premises Database to Azure SQL DB was easy but now comes the hard part how do you setup monitoring and alerts? While there are many 3rd party options what comes standard with Azure:
- How can you be sure your azure SQL Database isn't under or over allocated, so that your costs are optimized.
- How can you project what future costs maybe.
- Using Azure Log Analytics to monitor databases
- What tools from your on-premises SQL server toolkit will still work and what new capabilities exists.

Join this session to ensure you are getting the most out of your Azure SQL database monitoring.
