Data persistence is the foundation of all apps. When you work with the Azure Cloud you have tons of choice. Do you still choose SQL Server? If yes, do you use VMs, SQL Database, or managed instances? What about containers? And what is this Cosmos DB thing? Do you even care about table and Blob storage? In this session, Brian will address these topics from the perspective of a modern DevOps pipeline created using Azure DevOps. He’ll look at the workflow and how you may make your choices for the best application experience and best DevOps experience.

You will learn:

  • Why you need DevOps for your data layer
  • How to pick a data persistence layer in the cloud
  • How to use Azure DevOps to manage your DevOps pipeline
