A Quick Break and New Adventure

I’m gone for the next three days, heading to Crested Butte, CO to ski. I enjoy skiing and this is the time of year I try to use vacation and get out with my wife.

We’ve been missing travel, and missing skiing. Some of our efforts recently haven’t gone great, though our place is Keystone is starting to get rentals. That’s a good sign. Since using our place would reduce our revenue, we decided to try a new place and just book lodging.

We’ve never been to Crested Butte. When I checked lift ticket reservations, they were available, and there was a lodging sale. So we decided to book a few days up there.

    Hi Steve – I hope you enjoy Crested Butte, I lived there for 9.5 years, moving back to the Denver area only two years ago. May I ask you a question? You posted recently that you recommend moving your organization’s database to Azure for Production only; not the Test or Development environments. Can you please advise as to why, or point me to a resource? I tried to ask this question on your blog that day, but my SQLCentral login did not work for me.
    Thank you,
    Wendy, Accidental DBA

      To me, the big reason is that Azure dbs are paid for, they have backups, and other items that are more suited to prod. A developer db is an open ended resource that I may use a lot, or not at all. Managing this is a pain, and not something developers are used to. Developers also have little control over resources and response.
      I’d prefer a dev laptop and dev edition of SQL Server.
