Microsoft is introducing a new unified migration tooling experience for mission-critical databases.
There will be three new options to help you modernise your data to the cloud. This is what Microsoft says:
- The 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 (see below), 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 IP support, while keeping all the benefits of a fully managed PaaS.
- A new Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server enables you to use your on-premises SQL Server licenses with Software Assurance to save up to 30% on SQL Database Managed Instance.
