Video Transcript

In this last video of the Azure SQL introduction course, I want to highlight some final takeaways from what we learned. You have learned that Azure provides multiple architectures to host your business critical database workloads, using infrastructure as a service, basically running virtual machines, but also focusing on platform as a service as the key topic in this course.

Next, you learned about the different ways of migrating your database where I talked about import, export, backpack file, using SQl Management Studio, or the newer SQL Database Migration Assistant, also helping you in running an assessment. And then, lastly, you learned about different optimization options before runtime, during runtime. We also talked about security features and [? high ?] [? feed ?] ability.

Now, throughout the course, I covered the following topics. We started with describing the benefits and [? topologies ?] available for moving SQL databases to the cloud. Next, I introduced you two different ways of deploying Azure SQL using the portal, using PowerShell, using Azure Command Line Interface. Then, we talked about a running SQL Azure database, where we talked about different migration strategies. And then, ending this course with a section on optimization security during running that workload.

And then, besides the presentations, I showed you several demos to help you get a really good understanding of the capabilities, but also learn how it is actually performed. And with that, I hope you really learned from the different topics. You’re ready to go out and start deploying, migrating your first SQL databases to Azure SQL. Good luck with that.

If you need some additional information, let me close down with sharing some Microsoft official product home page links. The Azure Migration Center, where you can find a lot more details about using the Database Migration Assistant. And then lastly, the official Azure SQL documentation homepage.

Thank you for watching this course on Azure SQL databases. I hope you learned from it, that it’s useful in your day-to-day database administration, your day-to-day database migrations, but most of all, besides learning, you enjoyed this course. Don’t hesitate reaching out by email or social media when you have any questions on as your SQL or Azure overall.

Have a great day. I hope to see you in one of the many other Azure courses here at Apress.
