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.


Here are some of the technologies that we use at DB Best to help you manage and migrate your Azure SQL Database solutions.
