To deploy DPA in the Cloud, simply provision an Azure virtual machine and install the software. DPA utlizes a SQL Server repository that you can configure on any virtual machine. DPA being installed on a VM separate from the SQL Server insances monitored is recommended. DPA for SQL Server’s agentless architecure only requires standard windows or SQL Server credentials to connect to an instance on a physical or cloud based server. DPA for SQL Server enables DBAs, developers, and system administrators to monitor, analyze, and tune performance of the SQL Server instance in the Azure Cloud. Its query response time, wait types, trends, alerts, and reports will all be available
Traditional server health metrics can be misleading due to the layers of abstraction with cloud based servers. DPA for SQL Server’s response time analysis provides an improved alternative by focusing on response time, wait types, and SQL query analysis for applications dependent on SQL Server.
DPA’s intuitive charts and non-intrusive architecture gives the entire IT team a unified view into application performance in Windows Azure—without sacrificing performance or security.
