    Key Activities

    Discovery workshop (1 day)
    Do you have a perfect understanding of your data landscape? Do you have all applications properly documented? ABCloudZ can help discover pitfalls that increase your TCO.

    During the initial discovery workshop, ABCloudZ experts work with your SQL Server DBAs and other team members to scope your current SQL Server deployments. The ABCloudZ team then provides a plan to deploy our monitoring and recommendations solution that fits within your environment.

    Monitoring and recommendations (1 week)
    Do you know your database usage patterns, peak load times, and possible issues? ABCloudZ experts can work with your team to deploy our monitoring and recommendation tools.

    Our specific tools capture a week’s worth of performance data and provide you with optimization roadmap. Then ABCloudZ experts will review the recommendations and deployment scripts with your team. Recommendations include ways to upgrade and candidate instances for consolidation, virtualization, or moving to SQL Server on Linux.

    SQL Server performance tuning (1 week)
    Are you ready for the changes? The ABCloudZ team will provide you with the automated deployment scripts to ensure that your upgrade process meets the DevOps best practices.

    ABCloudZ experts will take results from Extended Events traces and/or Query Store to identify top CPU intensive queries with remediation scripts to review with your SQL Server DBAs. ABCloudZ experts will monitor the SQL Server instance and recommend additional vCPU reductions to save up to 30% of your initial TCO.
