MIG20: Moving your Database to Azure

Date: 01 Feb 2019
Location: Milano, Italy
Event name: Microsoft Ignite | The Tour
Duration: 60 minutes


Northwind Traders kept the bulk of its data in an on-premises data center, which hosted servers running both SQL Server and MongoDB. After the acquisition, Tailwind Traders worked with the Northwind team to move their data center entirely to Azure. In this session we’ll show you how we migrated an on-premises MongoDB database to Azure Cosmos DB and SQL Server database to an Azure SQL Server Managed Instance. You’ll learn about data preparation decisions, performing the migration, and ensuring your application has zero downtime while switching over to the cloud hosted database providers.
