In the current global scenario, while most of the companies are still struggling with the pandemic effects, some companies are looking at cost-cutting, and explore new growth opportunities. If you are one of those companies, this is the perfect time to migrate your SQL Server Workloads to the cloud.
It is also a overwhelming and cumbersome task to maintain a large number of SQL Server databases, which requires significant maintenance, resources, license overheads, hardware costs whilst ensuring business continuity.
At Saxon, we help you accelerate your migration journey from SQL Server to your preferred cloud platform, be it Azure, AWS (EC2 and RDS), or Yellowbrick. We ensure you that your entire migration journey is safe, compliant, and cost-effective.
We have highlighted below some pain points of SQL Server and why you should move your workloads to the cloud:
SQL Server can hardly cross the scan speed of 10GB/sec and 10x times lower as compared to the cloud platforms. SQL Server management is not scalable for big workloads.
SQL Server often lacks in performance and consumes a lot of time with reports and queries, sometimes even running into hours. SQL Server also requires constant performance tuning
SQL Server licenses are costly, complex and subject to change. It requires constant updating or buying the new licenses. It makes the entire process a cumbersome one.
Rigid expanding capacity
Expanding capacity in SQL Server is often costly, time-taking, needs downtime and affects business continuity. SQL Server management is cumbersome and requires costly hardware.
Slow data ingestion
SQL Server cannot load data faster than 3GB/ sec in bulk and writes ~1m rows/second for streaming updates. Data is not immediately query able in the SQL. It reduces the performance
Expensive backup Mechanism
It is a complicated and expensive issue to backup operations across multiple SQL Server instances. This impacts the data performance resulting into bad insights for the end users.
