Have you recently decided to move to Microsoft Azure, but don't know where to start? Do you have concerns about how to get your data there? Thankfully, migrating to Azure isn't as daunting as you might think. In this full-day, hands-on session, you will learn about the foundations of the Microsoft Azure SQL Platform ecosystem. We will examine the differences between Azure SQL Database, Managed Instances, and SQL Server in an Azure VM, as well as how to migrate to each of these options. We will ensure that you understand the basics around networking in Azure and how the network connects back to your on-premises environment. After performing some live migrations, we will explore topics such as ensuring data safety, including high availability, disaster recovery, security controls, and encryption. By the end of this session, you will obtain newfound confidence to help you get data up into the cloud in a safe, secure, cost effective, and successful manner!
Some Azure knowledge would be helpful but not required.
