Choosing your Data Platform fit: SQL database, Managed Instance, VM or Hybrid?



On the current Microsoft Data Platform we have several options to move our data to the cloud.  However, finding the right fit for your environment is not that straightforward.

During this session, we will be showing you all the options you have for choosing your own cloud data strategy.

We will be handling Azure SQL databases, Azure Managed Instances, Azure VM’S and hybrid solutions.

We will show you what options you have and how you can move your on-prem systems to the cloud.

After this session you will be ready to start moving your environment to the cloud in an efficient manner.
