Optimizing your IT infrastructure frees up time and resources that can go toward transforming your business. Microsoft is committing to helping you get there. That's why we're introducing a new unified migration tooling experience for your mission-critical databases, to streamline the data and application migration initiatives in your organization.

Introducing three new options to help you modernize your data to the cloud:

  • 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.

Database Migration Service and Managed Instance will be available for public preview in the near future—sign up now to receive updates, including the important steps you should take to prepare your data ecosystem.
