SQL Server on Linux, Containers and Kubernetes

SQL Server has evolved from a pure RDBMS to a complete data platform, running on Microsoft Windows and now in Microsoft Azure. It now runs on the Linux platform, and also on Containers and Kubernetes - but when and why would you consider these platforms for SQL Server? And what are some differences to be aware of when managing, monitoring and using the system on those environments? In this session we'll cover these platforms with an overview, and explain the installation, management, and monitoring of each.
