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

You migrate your on-premises SQL Database to the cloud, taking advantage of the PaaS offering of Azure SQL Database. You heard the promise of spinning up databases on-demand, scaling up resources during high peaks, and scaling down when unused. You also want to ensure you perform integrity checks, index defragmentation, and 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. Different options are available to automate these long-running, manual, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks to increase efficiency.

I will show you different options for automating these tasks in this demo-heavy session. Some solutions use on-premises infrastructure or Azure services conveniently encapsulated within the 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.
