Professional Azure SQL Database Administration

Azure SQL Database is the cloud version of SQL Server. It differs in terms of management, maintenance, and administration. It’s important to know how to administer SQL Database so that you can get the most out of the features that it provides. This course addresses different management aspects of an Azure SQL Database such as migration, backup and restore, pricing, security, scalability, monitoring, and performance optimization, high availability and disaster recovery.

This is a 3-day course which balances theory and hand-on applications that are focused on practical takeaways. Built with a narrative of a DBA, who is migrating from a traditional on-premises system to Azure SQL Database, this course emulates the different scenarios you might come across while working with Azure SQL Database.

This course is for database administrators, database developers, or application developers interested in developing new or migrating existing applications with Azure SQL Database.
