Featured services for Azure SQL Database

Here is a sample of the services that we provide to customers like you to support your Azure SQL Databases.

Getting Started

At DB Best, we’ve helped our customers get the most out of Azure SQL Database. We have several ways to help you get started.

OUR CUSTOMER REDUCED COSTS BY OVER 20% BY OPTIMIZING AZURE ELASTIC POOLS

A leading provider of payroll and HR services in the United States faced difficulties configuring Azure elastic pools for their SaaS Azure app. The Azure tools provided by Microsoft were not flexible enough to fine tune the performance of 20,000 customer databases with different utilization patterns. Moreover, it was almost impossible to maintain so many databases manually.

DB Best engineers came up with a solution that allows automatic management of the customer databases basing on extensive monitoring of the elastic pools performance. Now the customer can optimize the Azure resources utilization that results in over 20 percent reduction of their Azure services costs.
Have a look at how we optimized elastic pools utilization in the following video.

Options for deployment

Azure SQL Database provides you with a selection of deployment options. You can opt for deploying a single database to a logical server or selecting an option to use an elastic pool on a logical server. This allows for sharing resources and reducing costs.

However, you may consider deploying your database to the Azure SQL Database Managed Instance. This option combines the best of SQL Server with the benefits of an intelligent, fully managed service.

And if you feel like one day you may need some extra storage, Azure SQL Database Hyperscale looks like the most prolific option. This new, highly performant database scaling technology allows for scaling compute and storage resources, without sacrificing performance.

Microsoft Incentives

As a Gold Partner with Microsoft with competencies in Data and Cloud Platforms, Microsoft provides business incentive funds that we can use to help offset the initial costs for proof of concepts projects and future-state architectural design sessions. If you are a managed account with Microsoft, please contact us to see if you are eligible for one of the programs listed below.
