Agenda

18:00 - Doors open and networking

18:30 - Azure SQL Database: Sharding and Split-Merge by Matt Robertshaw

Azure SQL Database is a managed cloud database offering in Microsoft Azure. Whilst it can scale vertically through the different service tiers, how do we go about scaling it horizontally? What does this mean for the data already contained within the database? In this session we'll be taking a look at the Microsoft Elastic Scale library, but more specifically the sharding and split-merge libraries that can support our desire to scale-out an Azure SQL database.

19:30 - Buffet and networking

20:00 - Introduction to Azure Analysis Services by Chris Webb

With the preview of Azure Analysis Services released a few weeks ago we have, at long last, got a crucial piece of the Microsoft BI stack available in the cloud. Azure Analysis Services is a SaaS version of Analysis Services Tabular, and in this session you’ll see how you can spin up a new instance of Analysis Services in minutes, connect it to your on-premises and cloud data sources, and build Power BI reports from it.

21:00 - Doors close
