An Introduction to Azure SQL Edge: The Database Engine for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things isn't just about connected devices — it's about the information those devices collect and the powerful, immediate insights that can be garnered from it. Enter Azure SQL Edge, which extends the industry-leading SQL Server engine to edge devices to work with the data they generate while offering consistent performance and security across your entire data estate, from edge to cloud. In this session we'll talk about what Azure SQL Edge is (and isn't) compared to SQL Server, how to work with Azure SQL Edge and the capabilities it offers for IoT workloads, scenarios for where and how to deploy Azure SQL Edge, and how to integrate IoT data with your existing SQL Server footprint.
