(, the industry's leading provider of software products that help IT ensure the performance, efficiency, and high availability protection of business critical applications, today announced that Microsoft Cluster MVP and SIOS Technical Evangelist Dave Bermingham will discuss Windows Azure Resource Manager at Pass Summit 2016 October 25-28 in Seattle, WA at the Washington State Convention Center. SIOS will also showcase both its machine learning IT analytics solution and its clustering software in Booth #307, and host "Pass the Bacon: Breakfast Panel" featuring leading SQL Server experts.

Speaking Session

Titled, "Azure Resource Manager: High Availability and High Performance," Dave's session is scheduled for Thursday, October 27 at 3:15 pm in Room 2AB. Session Code DBA 200, Dave's presentation is a general session in the Enterprise Database Administration & Deployment track.

Deploying mission critical SQL Server in Azure IaaS requires an in-depth understanding of storage, virtual networks, load balancers, SQL Server AlwaysOn and more. To qualify for Azure's SLA of 99.95% availability steps must be taken to mitigate downtime by leveraging Fault Domains and Update Domains in conjunction with SQL Server AlwaysOn AG or FCI. Azure Resource Manager (ARM) replaces Azure "Classic" as the preferred deployment method in Azure. New features such as Deployment Templates and Resource Groups introduced in ARM make it a powerful tool in managing the entire lifecycle of SQL Server in Azure. In this session attendees will learn how to leverage ARM to deploy SQL AlwaysOn SQL AG and FCI in Microsoft Azure IaaS. Both Template Deployments and manual configurations using the Azure Portal and Azure PowerShell will be demonstrated. High performance optimization will be discussed and demonstrated with a goal of achieving performance goals without over-provisioning cloud resources.
