Geek Sync Webcast : Improving Query Performance in Azure SQL Database

Moving to Azure SQL can help with many things, including faster scalability and easier disaster recovery strategy implementation. Unfortunately, one thing it will not immediately do is fix bad code, which leads to bad performance even in Azure SQL.

In this hour-long session, we’ll examine several different methods that you can utilize to help fix bad performance starting with the underlying service tier. Next, we’ll investigate what options are available directly from the Azure portal to determine where the bottlenecks might reside along with possible ways to fix them. Lastly, we will interrogate which native SQL Server tools exist within Azure SQL Database that can really help solve any performance issues you might be having. You’ll leave this session with a solid understanding of how to troubleshoot performance issues in Azure SQL Database and what you might be able to do to help fix them.
