So the decision to move to the cloud has been made but there is a fear from people that once it happens they will lose control of their job function. Does this sound familiar? DBA’s, you will be needed but expect some sort of change (That’s my opinion).
I have decided to do a 4-part series on Cloud “Fear Busting” scenarios. Why? Over the past few years working with the cloud (Azure) I have come across 4 main “fears” or “concerns” that stand out in my mind that people have highlighted when adopting cloud technology for their database tier. Each “fear” with form a blog post where I am hoping that after reading each post you will be “less” fearful. More specifically I will be looking at these topic areas:
- I have security fears for SQL Database.
- Performance Issues that I faced – Learn from my mistakes.
- There is no going back – can I get the data back?
- I’m a DBA – Will I lose control?
