Many consulting companies know SQL. Some are up to speed on Azure and how to utilize Azure to benefit your SQL environment, and a few understand how to license these solutions appropriately - i.e. take into consideration the cost of licensing and help ensure that the customer stays compliant.

Countless consulting companies can sell PaaS but knowing how to integrate that with your SQL platform is what Interlink does. We properly size the Database Throughput Units (DTUs), which are based on a blended measure of CPU, memory, reads, and writes. By properly sizing DTUs in PaaS, we can help ensure you don’t under or over provision your processor, memory, and disk resources.
With Interlink, you can worry less about the management of your SQL platform and focus more on value-adds to your business.
