Next, it goes deep into deploying and operationalizing SQL Server in Kubernetes, both on premises and in cloud environments such as the Azure Cloud.
You will begin with container-based application fundamentals and then go into an architectural overview of a Kubernetes container and how it manages application state. Then you will learn the hands-on skill of building a production-ready cluster. With your cluster up and running, you will learn how to interact with your cluster and perform common administrative tasks. Once you can admin the cluster, you will learn how to deploy applications ...
Mastering Windows Server 2019, 3rd Edition
Windows Server 2019 has a lot to offer, with a variety of roles, features, toolsets, and server management interfaces that allow interaction with your servers from virtually anywhere in the world.

How To Manage Remote Servers with Ansible
This book is designed to introduce you to using Ansible to manage your servers. You'll learn how to install and configure Ansible on a control node, and then how to use it to configure and run commands on remote servers. You'll also learn how to collect tasks into complete Playbooks to automate server setup from start to finish.
The topics that it covers include how to:
- Become familiar with configuration management tools and processes, and the benefits of using them to manage your infrastructure.
- Install and configure Ansible on an Ubuntu 20.04 control node, ensuring that your servers are properly set up and that you are able to execute remote instructions through Ansible.
- Build inventory files and organize your servers into groups to selectively control how and where Ansible commands are run.
- Run Ad Hoc commands to execute individual tasks on one, or multiple remote servers.
- Package individual commands into Playbooks that you can use to automate the provisioni ...

Building Custom Tasks for SQL Server Integration Services, 2nd Edition
Build custom SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) tasks using Visual Studio Community Edition and C#. Bring all the power of Microsoft .NET to bear on your data integration and ETL processes, and for no added cost over what you've already spent on licensing SQL Server. New in this edition is a demonstration deploying a custom SSIS task to the Azure Data Factory (ADF) Azure-SSIS Integration Runtime (IR).
All examples in this new edition are implemented in C#. Custom task developers are shown how to implement custom tasks using the widely accepted and default language for .NET development.
Why are custom components necessary? Because even though the SSIS catalog of built-in tasks and components is a marvel of engineering, gaps remain in the available functionality. One such gap is a constraint of the built-in SSIS Execute Package Task, which does not allow SSIS developers to select SSIS packages from other projects in the SSIS Catalog. Examples in this book show how to cre ...
