Join Brian Randell for an in-depth discussion in this video Database drift at scale, part of DevOps for the Database with TFS 2018.
- [Instructor] In the earlier chapter on versioning…I showed you Schema Compare and how you could use it…to compare a database instance…against a database project.…And this was interesting because I pointed out how…it's possible for the definition…that's in the database to be different…then what you have in version control.…And this often happens a lot…where changes are made in production to the system…and after the fact you need to synchronize.…We like to call this drift…and basically at the end of the day…production is the ultimate source of truth.…
Now as I've mentioned you want to come with a good process…for how changes take place.…We want changes to go through a process…where they can be tracked and monitored…through the full lifecycle.…But sometimes changes do need to be made in production…and so what we need to be able to do is detect those changes…and get them into our projects…and back on track.…While Schema Compare can help you do that…if you have lots of databases out there in production…it may be hard to monitor them all.…
