Overview

On this accelerated 1-day Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Data Platform Upgrade and Migration course, you'll get the skills you need to build a Proof-of-Concept (POC) and conduct a site analysis that compares cost, performance and effort required to migrate from Oracle to SQL server.

Your expert Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), will guide you through how to take advantage of new SQL Server features to improve performance and resiliency, and how to migrate from an old version of SQL Server to the newest version, whilst considering the impact of migrating from on-premises to the cloud.

You'll also get the skills you need to evaluate the dependent applications and reports that may need to be updated and come up with a migration plan.

During the workshop you'll learn how to:

  • Migrate from Oracle to SQL Server using SQL Server Migration Assistant
  • Migrate between different SQL Server editions using Data Migration Assistant
  • Use advanced SQL Server features, such as JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) data store, table compression, Transparent Data Encryption, and clustered ColumnStore indexing
  • Consider the steps required to update existing applications to use the new data platform
  • Analyze and improve database performance
  • Implement high availability using Stretch Database and AlwaysOn Availability Groups

You'll be immersed in the Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which combines theory and practical skills to help you retain information faster.

If you're a cloud architect and IT professional with architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design in cloud technologies and would like to learn more about Azure, this course is ideal for you.
