About This Course

In the Data modernization workshop, you will learn how to develop a plan for migrating on-premises VMs and SQL Server databases into a combination of IaaS and PaaS services in Azure. In this hands-on lab, you implement a proof-of-concept (PoC) for migrating an on-premises SQL Server 2008 R2 database into Azure SQL Managed Instance (SQL MI). You perform assessments to reveal any feature parity and compatibility issues between the on-premises SQL Server 2008 R2 database and Azure’s managed database offerings. Then you will migrate the customer’s on-premises gamer information web application and database into Azure, with minimal down-time. Finally, you enable some of the advanced SQL features in SQL MI to improve security and performance in the customer’s application.
