Google Compute Engine Whitepapers

Brent Ozar Unlimited has a couple whitepapers out about working with SQL Server in Google Compute Engine.  First, Brent and Tara Kizer create an Availability Group:

In this white paper we built with Google, we’ll show you:

  • How to build your first Availability Group in Google Compute Engine

  • How to test your work with four failure simulations

  • How to tell whether your databases will work well in GCE

Erik Darling also has a whitepaper on performance tuning:

Relax. Have a drink. In this white paper we built with Google, we’ll show you:

  • How to measure your current SQL Server using data you’ve already got

  • How to size a SQL Server in Google Compute Engine to perform similarly

  • After migration to GCE, how to measure your server’s bottleneck

  • How to tweak your SQL Server based on the performance metrics you’re seeing

If you’re looking at GCE as a potential migratory spot, you’ve got some extra reading material.
