IMPORTANT: In Microsoft nomenclature there are two portals: Classic Portal and Azure Portal. The Classic one is being phased out. This Course is entirely based on Azure Portal, which is the newest version.
Additionally, this course is NOT for any of the current Microsoft Certifications.
In this course we are going to cover Azure SQL Database. Azure SQL Database is Microsoft’s cloud database service.
Based on SQL Server database technology and built on Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud computing platform, SQL Azure enables organizations to store relational data in the cloud and quickly scale the size of their databases up or down as business needs change. Data is hosted, managed and provisioned in Microsoft data centers.
This course takes a hands on, real world approach to working with Azure SQL Databases. While there is some theory most the course will be focused on working with the latest version of Windows Azure.
This course will give YOU the foundation to become more comfortable working inside Windows Azure.
As a SQL Server Consultant I can tell you that many of my customers are MOVING to Windows Azure’s various cloud offerings.
As a matter of fact, 30% of Fortune 500 companies use Azure at some level.
There are still many LIMITATIONS and nuances to moving SQL Server Databases to the cloud. We will discuss many of these in the course.
The code, applications, and TOOLS (like Management Studio) you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Azure SQL Database. Windows Azure patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery.
