March 27 – Mike Walsh – Migrating from On-Premise to Azure SQL DB

Dates: 03/23/2017 - 03/31/2017 Dates: 03/23/2017 - 03/31/2017

Join us at the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth for:

Migrating from On-Premise to Azure SQL DB 

Target Audience:
Cloud curious DBAs and Developers who want to see an example of building out a database environment.

You know about the cloud but you’re not there yet. Is it hard? Is it easy? How do you get started? Come to this session and see for yourself. We’ll start with nothing and end up with a deployed Azure SQL Database. We’ll even run a quick PowerBI report and enable Geo-Redundant Disaster Recovery with a couple clicks.

The goal is to take the mystery out, to 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. I believe the future belongs to those who have this knowledge and know where to apply it.
This will be nearly PowerPoint free and we’ll log into my Azure Portal and build out an environment from scratch and learn as we go. We’ll migrate data from an “on-premises” database into our SQL DB and we’ll query it. You’ll leave with an understanding of the capabilities, 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 with your own trial. Platform as a Service isn’t the answer to every problem, but after you see how simple it is to get started, maybe you’ll get some ideas of where it is.
