3:00pm - 4:15pm

Level: Introductory to Intermediate

While more workloads moving to virtual environments, the data warehouse is often one of the last physical server in the data center. However, that doesn't need to be the case. In this session, you'll learn about the challenges of implementing your BI environments in a virtual environment. This includes your data warehouse and its ancillary systems like Analysis Services, Integration Services and Reporting Services. We'll also talk a little bit about how Azure VMs can change this guidance.

You will learn:

  • To understand the nature of virtual computing environments
  • To understand the types of workloads from BI systems
  • To allow for proper design of virtual environments for BI workloads
