Combine the power of OSS DB engines and Microsoft Azure to migrate existing apps or build new apps

Tuesday 2:20PM-3:10PM

@ Room 203


50 minutes conference


Developer, Operations

Azure provides fully managed, enterprise-ready community MySQL and PostgreSQL services that are built for developers and devops engineers. These services use the community database technologies you love and enable you to focus on your apps instead of management and administration burden. In this session, we will walk you through service capabilities such as built-in high availability, security, and elastic scaling of performance that allow you to optimize your time and save costs. We will demonstrate how the service integrates with the broader Azure platform enabling you to deliver innovative and new experience to your users. The talk will cover best practices and real customer examples to demonstrate the benefits and how you can easily migrate your databases to the managed service.
