SQL is everywhere you need it from the IoT Edge to your datacenter to public clouds. With all of these options, it can be difficult to know which to choose and why each option may be right for your business. In this presentation, we'll review with you all the current released and preview versions of SQL from the edge to the cloud, including the newly announced SQL Server 2022. We'll compare each of them and discuss why you want to get ahead of the curve by understanding what is possible with the modern SQL data platform including technologies like Machine Learning and Serverless SQL pools in Synapse. We'll discuss the technical details of some of these options so you can understand what SQL "flavor" fits your company's needs along with live demonstrations of SQL in ways you have never seen before.

You will learn:

  • About all the various ways to use SQL Server from the Edge to the Cloud, including SQL Server 2022
  • How to choose the best option to deploy SQL Server
  • See live demonstrations of SQL Server in ways you have never seen before
