Optimizing your IT infrastructure frees up time and resources that can go toward transforming your business. Microsoft is committing to helping you get there. That's why we're introducing a new unified migration tooling experience for both new versions of SQL Server and Azure SQL database service, to streamline the data and application migration initiatives in your organization.
Introducing two new limited previews:
- A new "Azure Database Migration service" will help you migrate existing on-premises SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL databases to Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance or SQL Server on Azure virtual machines.
- A new deployment option, "Azure SQL Database - Managed Instance" will bring increased compatibility with on-premises SQL Server instances, network isolation with full VNET and private IPs support, while keeping all the benefits of a fully managed PaaS. This limited preview has reached its capacity. Public preview is coming soon. We kindly ask you to be patient and evaluate the new platform at that time.
