Microsoft SQL Server Performance Tuning on Compute Engine

This white paper discusses how to create a SQL Server database instance on Google Compute Engine, and then use performance metrics to optimize its performance. This paper is intended for database administrators, Windows administrators, and developers who are planning to build their first SQL Server instance on Google Compute Engine.

In this white paper, you will learn how to:

  • Measure your current SQL Server performance using data you already have.
  • Size a SQL Server on Compute Engine to perform similarly.
  • Measure your server’s bottleneck.
  • Tweak SQL Server based on performance metrics.

The examples in this white paper use T-SQL to accomplish a lot of these goals, but you don’t need to be familiar with writing queries to follow along.
