Azure SQL Databases - A Guided Tour

You know about the cloud but you’re not there yet. Is it hard? Is it easy? How do you get started? Watch this webinar and see for yourself. We’ll start with nothing and end up with a deployed Azure SQL Database. We’ll even run a quick report and enable Geo-Redundant Disaster Recovery with just a few clicks.The goal is to take the mystery out, show the capabilities and get you thinking about what going to the cloud could look like and what it can do for you and your company. The future belongs to those who have this knowledge and know where to apply it.

You’ll gain an understanding of the capabilities in the cloud, some resource links outlining what we did, and hopefully some curiosity to see what else is up there in the cloud as you start exploring.

In this webinar we discussed the following:

  • The differences between Iaas and PaaS
  • The Amazon and Microsoft offerings – with a focus on Azure SQL Database
  • Building out an environment from scratch in a Azure Portal
  • Migrating data from an “on-premises” database into a SQL DB and query it from on-prem tools
