Powering SQL Server Workloads on Azure
Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most widely used databases handling hundreds of gigabytes or terabytes for mission-critical applications. Because of the sheer complexity and demanding IO needed, it is typically very difficult to migrate SQL workloads to the cloud without significant thought and preparation.
This solution brief looks at how the Silk Platform helps you quickly and easily move SQL Server workloads from on-prem to any public cloud while supercharging database performance. We’re talking:
- Bulk load more than 20 million rows in 1 second
- Load more than 8TB of data into a SQL database in less than an hour
- Perform a full table scan and retrieve a full 75+ GB data table into memory within half a minute. All while easily reading sustained 4-5 GB/sec without the need of partitioning tricks. That’s performance from the very first second!
