That was acronym soup. I'd suggest Point in Time (PIT) instead of just PIT, etc.

Thanks, added the text in parens. I sometimes get caught up in assuming people know the acronyms and shouldn't.

Would really like to hear about people's experiences with moving databases to the cloud (IaaS or PaaS). We currently have our SQL Server 2005 databases on an internal VM running Windows Server 2003. We've moved most of our web applications to the cloud (IaaS) but have been more reluctant to move the databases. The biggest motivations for us to move databases to the cloud are for the security updates of a newer operating system and to eliminate hardware replacement issues of an older system.

I found this article useful for considering which hosting option in Azure might be best for us:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sql-database/sql-database-paas-vs-sql-server-iaas

We have technical administrative capabilities so I'm leaning toward IaaS for the database, same as we did for our web applications.

Has anyone had negative experiences with databases the cloud? Have you needed to do any database recovery in the cloud? Any insights would be helpful as we consider our options.

Thanks!

Damn... I thought this was going to be a word association response test. My response to the words "Cloud Safe" was going to be "Oxymoron". BigGrin

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
