September 22 (EMEA) and September 23 (The Americas)
These sessions discuss availability for multiple areas of the data application stack. Additional sessions to be announced!
Author and noted SQL Server expert, Denny Cherry discusses the financial and technical challenges as well as the best solutions for protecting SQL Server from downtime and data loss in cloud environments. He will also review low-cost storage options to protect SQL Server data from downtime in Azure, AWS, and other environments where traditional shared storage clusters are not an option.
SAP on Azure-with strategies for disaster recovery and high availability
SAP has partnered with Microsoft to quickly deploy and run SAP S/4HANA on Microsoft Azure. Learn the benefits of migrating SAP and SAP S/4HANA applications to the Azure cloud and how to provide high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) for your critical systems.
Containers for High Availability
Are you curious about using containers for database deployments? Using containers has become very popular with developers because of the flexibility and ease of use. Bringing those containers into production requires thought around high availability and backups. In this session you will learn about how a container orchestration engine like Kubernetes can bring high availability to your deployments.
SAP High Availability Best Practices for Zero Downtime
Navigating the complexities of HA/DR for SAP, HANA and S/4 HANA environments in the cloud presents a variety of challenges. Join independent consultant and SAP expert, Bobby Jagdev for a discussion of those challenges and key options for overcoming them. Bobby will look at the traditional options for protecting SAP applications and HANA and S/4HANA databases in the cloud and share best practices for HA and disaster recovery of SAP and SAP S/4HANA
Best Practice Configurations for SQL Server Performance
Everyone wants to know how to make SQL Server faster. Start with this list to double check your environment to ensure your servers and databases are optimized in order to make SQL Server run faster, better and more efficiently. In this session you will learn about what you need to review and implement to get a performance and configuration improvements. We will cover some of the top best practice configurations including SQL Server surface area, memory optimizations, isolation levels, Tempdb and log configuration.
Choosing the Right Database with Google Cloud to Match Your HA/DR, Business Objectives, and Technical Requirements
Google Cloud provides databases for every workload. In this session, explore how to choose the right database for a given workload, including Google Cloud databases and partner databases.

Best Practices for Highly Available Oracle Workloads in the Cloud
This session will discuss the latest updates on high availability best practices for Oracle workloads in public clouds, including Oracle Active Data Guard, Oracle RAC, and Oracle GoldenGate. We will also discuss considerations for moving your Oracle workloads to the public cloud, and practical strategies for maintaining HA in the cloud while also remaining fiscally responsible and license compliant.
Increasing SQL Server Availability with Hybrid Architectures
Many companies still need to maintain an on-premises presence but want to use a public cloud provider for disaster recovery. Designing new solutions or extending existing ones to create a hybrid SQL Server architecture can be tricky. This session will discuss the pros and cons along with tips on how to increase availability when using a hybrid solution.
Knowing Your Weakest Link: Calculating Your Availability Chain Strength
When considering availability you must consider the ‘availability chain’; the key components that make access to your application possible. Your application is only as available as your weakest link, and your downtime increases exponentially with each additional link you add to the chain.
Migrating Oracle workloads to Google Cloud
In this session, you will learn how to reduce overhead, drive innovation, and agility with a wide variety of databases for your Oracle workloads. From Bare Metal Solution to cloud-native databases, Google Cloud offers infrastructure and platform solutions to meet your needs.
