Until very recently, Azure SQL was just for... well. Azure. Join Data Platform MVP Ben Weissman as he explores Azure Arc for Data Services, Microsoft‘s solution to deploy services like Azure SQL to any cloud – including private clouds – using kubernetes. He will take us through the core concepts of Arc enabled Data Services and also demo how easy it is to deploy an Azure SQL Managed Instance on premises (or in any other cloud) while still being able to see it’s telemetry etc. from the Azure portal.
Ben has been working with SQL Server since SQL Server 6.5, mainly in the BI/Datawarehousing field. He is a Microsoft Data Platform MVP, a co-author of "SQL Server Big Data Clusters" and "The Biml Book", regular blogger and speaker on national and international events. Ben has been involved in about 150 BI Projects and is always looking for ways to become more productive and make SQL Server even more fun! Together with his team at Solisyon, Ben provides training, implementation and consultancy for SQL/BI developers and data analysts in (upper-) mid-market companies around the globe.
