You have been given new responsibilities to automate deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications – not just SQL Server databases. But you feel stuck and overwhelmed because you have so much to figure out. The available information on the internet isn't helping and you're wasting so much time trying to learn things on your own. Even worse, you end up being a stressed, overworked DBA who wished you could focus on the “cool stuff”, but are instead stuck in firefighting mode while juggling the additional workload.

In this session, learn how to build a custom SQL Server on Containers image solution that you can incorporate in your DevOps workflow. You will also learn how to leverage containers for faster SQL Server deployments - be it in development or production environments.
