What is PAAS in DB world
You can not connect to the server
You can not manage hardware
You can not control hardware
No clusters etc.…
So… what DBA’s can do?
Nothing in infrastructure - there are 3 replicas…
Applicative work: adding Indexes, short transaction
High queries by CPU ,IO etc.…
Create DB – 3 ways (from portal, ssms, vs2012)
Size – 1-500 GB
Basic monitoring (monitoring in other tools like Quest)
Connection strings from the portal
Backups to BLOB
Any One, Anywhere can query DB
From Smartphone you can monitor
VM - templates
New features – looks at the blog (Auditing, Automation)
…. Or not
No regular backups
No read replica within the data center
Features that are not supported
Co administrator in Azure can change lots
Changes in Azure can bring your bill up –
without changing anything.
Fair share policy.
Scale out only via code
And The Ugly
Federations is retired
Not all T-sql supported (sequence)
New feathers are slow - for example EE or
backups only via PS.
SLA – good but when you need Restart –
you can not do it.
Many small DB’s with better DTU – cost as
500 GB DB’s
• SO… When should we use SQL AS PAAS ?
• Simple and small DB’s
• The high point after IPO or Elections
• Reduce storage costs/IT costs
• No MSFT agreements
• When we need Unlimited resources
• Easy to manage (But risky)
• Hybrid – some on privet cloud and some on public.
• No Bottlenecks at IT, Finance ect..
Lots of small DB’s
Scale up – increase DB size
Scale out – Shard
