Tobiasz Janusz Koprowski, Data Platform MVP Shadowland Consulting

On my first session I would to introduce everyone to formerly known SQL Azure (actually Windows Azure SQL Database). Under Tips and Trick session I will show which points, features, compatibility and non-compatibility for SQL Azure are important for DBA's. I will cover functionalities, performance, cost, and sla and security aspects. After break I will show how we can work with our data in the Cloud using SQL Azure, Blob Storage, what functionality of backup, restore, encryption and availability are available for us, how we can implement hybrid environment and when an why it is (or not) good practice. And finally I hope we will find few minutes for discussion about Future of the DBA (not only in AD 201).
