View Event: Azure SQL Database – Where is my SQL Agent?

You migrate your on-premise SQL Database to cloud, taking advantage of the PaaS offering of Azure SQL Database. You heard the promise of spinning up databases on demand and being able to scale up /down as required. You also want to make sure you are performing integrity checks, statistics updates when necessary. There is no SQL Agent, so how do you automate your jobs? Do you have time to do this manually each time? No. There are different options available to automate these long-running, manual, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks to increase reliability, efficiency.

In this demo intensive session, I will show you different options on how to automate these tasks. These solutions use on-prem infrastructure and Azure services conveniently encapsulated within the collective Azure portal experience.

At the end of this session, you will have a solid understanding of how to automate SQL Server Maintenance tasks, including replacing SQL Agent functionality with multiple options.

Prerequisites: Experience using an on-premise SQL Server Agent. Familiarity with Azure Portal.

Recommendation I just read from vendor to customer to "address" a performance issue:

1. Drop the indexes that were ... recently recreated
2. Rebuild all indexes
3. Restart SQL Server

My reply: This is not what I would recommend.
