SQL Server DBA’s Guide to Docker Containers
Your role as a SQL Server professional is evolving and you are now responsible for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications – not just SQL Server databases.
Does this sound like you?
- – Your company is moving forward with a Linux and container strategy but you are clueless of how your role as a SQL Server DBA can be a part of this
- – Your application developers have started using Docker for application deployment and you are confused about this whole DevOps buzzword being thrown around, not knowing where SQL Server fits in
- – You need to learn Docker ASAP but don’t have a clue where and how to start

- – How to leverage Docker containers for deploying SQL Server
