Module 4: Monitor and Optimize Operational Resources

This module will teach you about resource optimization for your databases created using either IaaS or PaaS services. The module also covers monitoring server and hardware resources. It will familiarize you with the various tools available for monitoring performance and establishing a baseline. You will learn how to interpret performance metrics for the most critical resources. You will also learn how to troubleshoot database performance using Azure SQL Database Intelligent Insights.

Module 5: Optimize Query Performance

Query execution plans are potentially the most important aspect of database performance. Improving bad plans is certainly an area where a small amount of effort can bring huge improvements. While hardware issues can limit query performance, improving hardware usually yields performance improvements in the 10-20% range, at most. More commonly database administrators encounter queries that are not optimized, have stale or missing statistics, have missing indexes, or poor database design choices that lead to the database engine doing more work than is necessary to return results for a given query. Improving the plans can sometimes yield performance improvements in the 100-200% range or even more, meaning that after improving a plan with better indexes or statistics, a query could run twice or three times as fast! This module provides details on how to analyse individual query performance and determine where improvements can be made.

Lessons:

  • Understanding SQL Server Query Plans
  • Explore Performance-based Database
  • Design Evaluate Performance Improvements
  • Lab : Query Performance Troubleshooting Identify issues with database design AdventureWorks2017

  • Use query hints to impact performance in AdventureWorks2017

After completing this module, students will:

  • Analyse query plans and identify problem areas
  • Evaluate potential query improvements
  • Review table and index design
  • Determine whether query or design changes have had a positive effect

Module 6: Automation of Tasks

A common goal for database administrators in many environments is to automate as many of their repetitive tasks. This can be as simple as using scripting to automate a backup process, and as complex as building a fully automated alerting system. This module provides details of automating tasks to simplify the DBA’s job. Methods include scheduling tasks for regular maintenance jobs, as well as multi-instance administration and configuration of notifications for task success or failure or non-completion.

Lessons:

  • Setting up Automatic Deployment
  • Defining Scheduled Tasks
  • Configuring Extended Events
  • Managing Azure PaaS resources Using Automated Methods

After completing this module, students will:

  • Deploy resources using automated deployment scripts
  • Create scheduled tasks
  • Create notifications and alerts
  • Configure automation for PaaS services

Module 7: Plan and Implement a High Availability and Disaster Recovery Environment

Data must be available when the business needs it. That means the solutions hosting the data must be designed with availability and recoverability in mind. Suppose you work for a company that sells widgets both in stores and online. Your main application uses a highly transactional database for orders. What would happen if the server or platform hosting the transactional database had a problem that made it unavailable or inaccessible for some reason? What impact would it have on the business? If the right solution is put in place, the database would come online in a reasonable timeframe with minimal effort, thus allowing business to continue with little-to-no impact. This module and its associated lab cover configuring, testing, and managing a solution for high availability and disaster recovery (HADR) in Azure, for both Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) deployments. This module will not only cover basic requirements, but also the various options available to achieve HADR.

Lessons:

  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery Strategies
  • IaaS Platform and Database Tools for HADR
  • PaaS Platform and Database Tools for HADR
  • Database Backup and Recovery
  • Lab : Plan and Implement a High Availability and Disaster Recovery Environment
  • Enable Geo-Replication for Azure SQL Database
  • Backup to URL and Restore from URL

After completing this module, students will understand:

  • The difference between recovery time and recovery point objectives
  • The available HADR options for both IaaS and PaaS
  • The considerations for planning and configuring HADR solutions including how backup and restore files
  • The factors that comprise a HADR strategy
  • How to configure a high availability solution via a hands-on lab
