Our Microsoft Azure Fast Start Workshop is a structured interactive experience that will accelerate your moving to Microsoft Azure and get you up and running in just a few days. What IS Microsoft Azure? It is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers. It provides SaaS, PaaS and IaaS services.
This particular Fast Start Workshop focuses on SQL in Azure, a relational database management system. As a database server, it is a software product that stores and retrieves data as requested by other software applications – which may run on either the same computer or on another computer across a network.
In this Fast Start, we will help you learn how to run SQL in Azure. We will start with an overview of the newest versions of SQL server and then give you an education of SQL server running as Infrastructure-as-a-Service compared with Azure SQL databases running as a Platform-as-a-Service. We will also give you guidance on which version of SQL you will want to try.
The foundation of the Fast Start will aid you in 5 different areas:
(1) Knowledge and understanding of Azure
(2) Access to a dedicated Subject Matter Expert
(3) Accelerate deployment of an Azure workload
(4) Hands-on experience
(5) Proof of concept running within your own subscription
