Pranab Mazumdar is currently working as an Embedded Escalation Engineer for the Microsoft Azure SQL Database (PaaS & IaaS) and Azure SQL Data Warehouse. He works very closely with the Engineering team to improve the service and make it a world class stateful service, helping customers and partners be successful with their business. Prior to aligning to the cloud side of the business, he was an Escalation Engineer with the SQL Server team in CSS/GBS, where he worked with the product team to fix bugs in the SQL Server product, thereby making SQL a better and preferred RDBMS. He has been working with Microsoft over 12 years, with specializations in SQL Server Engine performance, high availability, and disaster recovery. He has worked with many large corporations with very large and complex SQL deployments. Apart from SQL, he also worked with operational Insight, formerly known as System Centre Advisor, migrating and helping create new sets of rules and validation processes. He holds a number of Microsoft certifications, including MCAD, MCSD, MCDBA, MSCE, MCTS, MCITP, and MCT- the latest one being Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate: Cloud Platform. He likes to be connected to his customers and he has been a speaker at TechEd, GIDs, SQL Saturday, SQL Talks, and other community UG events. Recetly he co-authored a book named “Pro SQL Server on Microsoft Azure” and also was the Technical reviewer of “Practical Azure Application Development: A Step-by-Step Approach to Build Feature-Rich Cloud-Ready Solutions” which apparently was the #1 release in Microsoft category.
