Azure SQL DB Improvements :
When Microsoft Azure SQL Database was introduced, it had only a small subset of the features available in the SQL Server database engine. With the introduction of version V12 a few years ago, Azure SQL Database is now an enterprise-class platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering. Of course, Microsoft continued to add new features and functionalities into Azure SQL Database. Join this dataMinds evening session to learn more about some cool new features that are available now in Azure SQL Database, like

vCore Model
Elastic Database Jobs
Backup Retention Periods
Geo-replication & Failover Groups
Virtual Network service endpoints
TDE with Bring Your Own Key
Data Discovery and Classification
SQL Vulnerability Assessment
Automatic Tuning
Intelligent Insights
Managed Instance
Data Migration Service

Oh man… as you can see, a lot of topics to explain in 2 hours ?? but we can discuss which topics you would like to hear more in detail. And no worries, we provide food & drinks!

Important: Prior knowledge on Azure SQL Database is encouraged, as we'll go beyond the basics.
