Being the start of the new year and with new projects most likely starting again I would like to share with you an article I wrote a while back, but still quite relevant.
Hopefully you find it useful for those wanting to know key differences between Azure SQL Database and a locally installed SQL Server from a DBA perspective and whether or not these key differences can be seen as advantages or disadvantages.
I have decided to do a summary blog post on backup and recovery options for Azure SQL Database. If you have a DBA background, you will know the importance of securing backups for your SQL Server databases. We have many options to do such a thing; being full, differential, log and filegroup backups. The common question that is asked is how do you backup (and restore) Azure SQL Databases? Or, what are the options available?
A non-technical post but something I have been asked about few times so I thought that I would put pen to paper and tell you about my journey on becoming a senior DBA. You might find it fun to read.
