The Migrate SQL Workloads to Azure course is a specialized program designed to equip IT professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully migrate on-premises SQL Server workloads to Microsoft Azure. This course focuses on teaching participants various migration strategies, tools, and best practices to ensure a seamless and efficient migration process. Participants will learn how to assess their SQL Server workloads, plan for migration, execute the migration, and validate the results, enabling them to leverage the benefits of Azure’s cloud services for their SQL databases.
This course is intended for IT professionals with a solid understanding of SQL Server administration and basic knowledge of Microsoft Azure. Participants should have prior experience in managing SQL Server databases and be familiar with Azure services.
The Migrate SQL Workloads to Azure course follows an interactive and hands-on approach. The course includes theoretical lectures, practical demonstrations, group discussions, and hands-on labs. Instructors will provide real-world scenarios to help participants apply migration concepts in practice.
