Today, database administrators (DBAs) have to spend a great deal of time and effort dealing with problems related to misconfiguration of Microsoft SQL Server. Microsoft Codename “Atlanta” is a configuration-monitoring cloud service that will help customers to reduce downtime and improve the performance of Microsoft SQL server deployments. This secure cloud service will help DBAs to:
- Proactively avoid problems with Microsoft SQL Server through ongoing monitoring and alerting of configuration from the cloud
- Reduce downtime and improve performance of Microsoft SQL Server through proactive scanning for known configuration issues and comparison with best practices.
- Resolve issues faster by providing Microsoft, or your own support staff, the ability to get a current view of your configuration, changes that have been made, and use the most up to date solutions to solve them
As per Microsoft "Atlanta" is available by Nov 8, 2010 and the production version will be available by first half of 2011 calendar year. Currently "Atlanta" is available for US based datacenters.
