As the database administrator for Magic Wand Services Corporation it’s your job to migrate an on-premises SQL Server database to an Azure SQL Managed Instance, a task mandated by the CTO’s plan to save money by eliminating the company’s in-house data center.
You’ll prepare for the move by determining which objects should and shouldn’t be migrated, using SQL Server Management Studio. You’ll set up your database by building a SQL Managed Instance Database using Azure portal and migrate server-level objects to the cloud using dbatools and SQL scripts. To achieve optimal performance with minimal downtime, you’ll configure your database migration and proceed with migrating your on-premises database to the cloud. You’ll finish by using the Azure portal and SQL Server Management Studio to verify that your database settings were implemented—and that your migration was successful.
I definitely learned what I expected to learn, and became far more comfortable with Azure because of it. I’ll apply what I’ve learned to other tasks, like metrics, alerts, and networking.
You’re a database administrator at Magic Wand Services Corporation. Your CTO has mandated the migration of all on-premises resources to the cloud in an effort to save money on resources. As a database administrator, it’s your job to make the necessary preparations for this migration.
Using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and SQL Server Auditing, you’ll determine usage of your on-premises databases to help decide what should (and shouldn’t) be moved to the cloud. Using SSMS, you’ll remove all objects that aren’t supported in Azure, any unused or unnecessary agent jobs and server objects, as well as any unused database objects. Then, to ensure you migrate everything you need to Azure, you’ll make a checklist in the text editor of your choice. When you’re finished, you’ll be prepared to smoothly migrate your SQL Server database to Azure SQL Managed Instance.
The CTO of Magic Wand Services Corporation has mandated the migration of all on-premises resources to the cloud in order to save money. As a database administrator, your job is to set up your cloud database, an Azure SQL Managed Instance, for optimal performance.
You’ll create a performance and configuration baseline using SQL Server Management Studio to ensure that you configure your Azure SQL Managed Instance properly to support your workload. With your baseline as a guide, you’ll use the Azure portal to build a SQL Managed Instance Database. Using dbatools and SQL scripts, you’ll migrate server-level objects from your on-premises SQL Server to the cloud, verifying that your Azure SQL Managed Instance is properly configured. When you’re done, you’ll have a managed instance with maximized performance to which you can confidently migrate your databases.
