Azure SQL DB Managed Instance: A New Path to the Cloud

Now Available On-Demand

With Microsoft’s announcement that Azure SQL DB Managed Instance would be generally available on October 1st, organizations now have a viable alternative to Azure SQL Database that has a high degree of parity with retail on-premises SQL Server.
But what is this new technology and how do you get the most out of it?
Review our October 2018 webinar where we explored this new database option looking at key architectural considerations and where it fits in the SQL Server product family.
We covered how to determine if Managed Instance is right for your workload, as well as what the options are for moving your workloads from on-premises to Managed Instance.
Finally, we discussed how SentryOne can help you work through the planning, migration, and operational phases of getting your workloads from your server room and into the cloud.
During the live presentation we had some excellent Q & A which you can review in John Martin's blog post.
