Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is bridging the gap between 0n-premises SQL Server and Azure SQL Database. Azure SQL Database Managed Instance gives you the benefits of Platform as a Service and the scoped configuration of a SQL Server instance. The overall goal of Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is to provide 100% surface configuration compatibility of on-premises SQL Server.
I’ve been working with Managed Instance for several months now and would love to share what I’ve learned with your user group. I’m really excited about this new product and what it means for organizations that would like to move to Azure SQL Database but have been limited by missing features.
If you would like to learn more about Azure SQL Database Managed Instance and can host a remote presentation (I can use our WebEx account), then reach out to me. I also have several other sessions I wouldn’t mind presenting to your user group. My list of sessions are:
An Introduction to Azure SQL Managed Instances
Common SQL Server Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Azure SQL Database for the Production DBA
Understanding Backup and Restore
So, calling all user group leaders! If you’d like me to present remotely for you in 2018 (or maybe even multiple times), send me an email and be sure to include:
- Details of which user group you represent (and if sending from a shared user group account, your name)
- The usual day of the month, meeting time, and timezone of the user group
- Which months you have available, starting in April 2018 (a list of available dates would be ideal)
- Whether you’d like just one or multiple sessions
Thanks and please spread the word, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is really cool!
