Why do organizations keep their entire team ready and available when any new deployment is about to happen? Well, the answer is pretty simple: there are many different variables that can go wrong when the new deployment happens. As a performance tuning expert, if anyone brings me a problem my first question is what has changed since the last go-live or deployment when things were all fine. I’m very happy to see changing trends in the industry where people are now accepting that we can improve deployment performance if we apply proper SQL Server Monitoring.
Improving Deployment Performance
By making monitoring a standard part of your deployment process, you can enable a free-flowing communications channel between your database administration and development teams. A monitoring tool can provide full visibility into server status and deployment impacts, so the two teams can work together to avoid problems affecting your customers.
Monitoring can also help your teams to continuously adjust and improve. It can enable them to work together to tweak performance, anticipate disruptions, and better manage resourcing requirements, ensuring ongoing customer satisfaction. As demand for more frequent deployments rises, the management of SQL Server availability needs to evolve. Learn why SQL Server monitoring should be part of your deployment process going into 2020.
