Free eBook on Migrating SQL Server Databases to Azure

Microsoft Press has released another free eBook for which IT Pros should take notice. The new eBook titled, Microsoft Azure Essentials: Migrating SQL Server Databases to Azure, is a 174-page book designed to introduce…

…you to SQL Server in an Azure virtual machine and to Azure SQL Database, and walks you through getting started with each approach. It takes you from creating a SQL Server instance in a virtual machine or as a platform service to migrating an on-premises database into Azure and then to securing the data and the database in Azure.  Beyond the explanatory content, each chapter includes one or more walk-throughs with extensive screenshots so you can follow along and create a trial subscription, create SQL Server in an Azure virtual machine, create an Azure SQL Database, migrate an on-premises database to each Azure environment, create users, backup and restore data, and archive data.

There’s two versions, a Standard PDF and a Mobile PDF. The only difference between the two is the size of the page output. The Standard is best for a regular PC/laptop and is formatted at the standard page size of 8.5” x 11”, while the mobile version is formatted to fit better on a smartphone or tablet screen. The cover may be one of the uglier book covers I’ve seen, but at least the content is eye-catching.

Standard: Microsoft Azure Essentials Migrating SQL Server Databases to Azure

Mobile: Microsoft Azure Essentials Migrating SQL Server Databases to Azure
