April 2020 WISSUG meeting

Introduction to Azure Managed instances    Presented by Tim Radney  (SQLSkills.com)

Have you been hearing about Azure Managed Instances and want to know what all the fuss is about?

 

Attend this meeting and see how Managed Instances are changing how we think about cloud databases.

Managed Instances can be considered a hybrid of Azure SQL Database and on-premises SQL Server

with all the awesome benefits of Platform as a Service.

 

You’ll get to see first-hand how easy it is to migrate databases from on-premises to a Managed Instance.

We’ll explore the differences between Azure SQL Database, Managed Instances, and SQL Server on an

Azure VM to help you determine what is the best fit for your organization.  If you’ve been considering

Azure for your organization, this session is for you!
