This article will explore backup options available in the Azure Cosmos DB service. Backups are very important to safeguard our data in case of data corruption, data deletion, system failure, or any unforeseen circumstances like DR. We have planned, configured, and managed it for our on-prem databases whether it is SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, or system files on various machines. DBAs and Infrastructure admins have ensured to keep a backup of all these systems to safeguard their data. Similarly, we must also secure our data hosted in a cloud environment for any services whether it is Azure VMs, Azure SQL, Cosmos Db accounts, or any other services. Today we will talk about backup options available to secure cosmos DB databases and their contents.Read more »
This article will talk about the periodic backup policy of the Azure Cosmos DB service offered by Azure cloud. I have already explained the backup options available for Cosmos DB in my last article. I would recommend you read it by accessing the attached link “Understanding Azure Cosmos DB backups” to understand the backup policies of Azure Cosmos DB. Today, I am going to explain one of the backup options Periodic backup, and steps about how to configure it for a cosmos DB account.Read more »

This article explains how to manage a memory-optimized filegroup of SQL Database. The memory-optimized filegroup contains the memory-optimized tables and table variables. I have written two articles that explain how we can migrate the disk-based tables to memory-optimized tables. Now, we will learn how to add memory-optimized filegroups in a SQL database. I will cover the following topics in the article.Read more »

In this article, we will learn how to get started using PostgreSQL on Docker. PostgreSQL is one of the most popular open-source databases that is being used by a lot of developers. It is highly stable and has a large community that maintains and supports the database development lifecycle. PostgreSQL can be installed on any operating system like Windows, macOS, and Linux. With the rise in containerization technologies, PostgreSQL can now also be installed using Docker.Read more »

The SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2015 are tools used for different purposes like:
- Working in relational database projects.
- Creating multidimensional or tabular databases in Analysis Services.
- Using Integration Service projects to import and export data.
- Building Reports in reporting services.
Azure SQL Database does not support native database backups. Therefore, you cannot use it to move from the Azure cloud to on-premises SQL Server. You can use the data-tier application BACPAC file format for exporting database schema and data from the Azure database. This BACPAC file is helpful to deploy on an Azure SQL Database, Managed Instance, and on-premises SQL Server.Read more »
This article will explain how to perform various activities for Azure cosmos DB using Azure storage explorer. The storage explorer is a very useful desktop utility that helps admins to manage Azure storage without accessing the Azure portal. We can also connect to Azure Cosmos DB accounts using this tool but this feature will be deprecated in the future. As of now, it is supported so I decided to explore it for cosmos DB activities.Read more »

Azure storage is a core cloud storage service that is used by almost all application or database deployments. We use it in SQL Server for various requirements like for backing up our databases directly to blob storage or some clients prefer to host their databases in Azure blob storage to leverage snapshot backups functionality. Today, I will explore how to monitor and troubleshoot blob storage issues in the Azure cloud by looking into storage metrics and storage logging features of Azure storage. We can configure or enable both configurations to view graphs and visualize their metrics like how storage is performing in the Azure cloud during each transaction. We will be discussing two storage diagnostics features Storage Metrics and Storage Logging which are extensively used to identify a storage problem in the Azure cloud.Read more »
