Eating the Elephant: Cloud Database Migration Considerations


How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

The days of explaining and justifying the cloud have passed. We no longer ask if we are going to the cloud; instead, we now ask when. Aging servers, older versions of SQL Server, new security and performance requirements—never has the demand been so urgent to move to the cloud. But there are a lot of considerations and risks. It can be a daunting task—a bit like eating an elephant—to pick the appropriate path to the cloud for your business and then begin the migration process.

Join SentryOne Chief Strategy Officer Douglas McDowell and SentryOne Solutions Engineer Devon Leann Wilson as they address the options, concerns, and benefits surrounding the many paths to migrating your on-premises and virtualized SQL Server workloads into the cloud. The discussion will cover business drivers as well as prescriptive guidance to get started immediately. Learn more about Azure and AWS capabilities, as well as toolsets and expert skills available to remove risk and accelerate your move to the cloud.
