Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is a new deployment option that streamlines the migration of SQL Server workloads to a fully managed database service. Azure Managed Instance provides the control of an IaaS environment and the capability of PaaS without the need for the extensive application re-engineering.

Get quick, accurate answers to your cloud related questions without breaking the bank.
Our Microsoft certified Data Platform consultants come onsite to obtain an understanding of your environment. We carry out an assessment and planning exercise to help us understand the current state of your server. By the end of this phase, you will have a report detailing your environment including recommendations for consolidation, opportunities for spend reduction and a summary of any potential issues prior to Azure migration.
Using the information obtained in the discovery phase, we produce a detailed design of how your environment would work in Azure. We consider your environments suitability for IaaS, PaaS or Managed Instances, your ability to leverage Azure Hybrid Benefit and Software Assurance and support for applications. This phase maps out your digital transformation journey.
Build, Implement & Migrate
Upon sign off on the detailed design, we build and configure your SQL Server Databases in Azure. On completion of the build, we migrate your existing workloads to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance. By the end of this phase, your environment will be running in Azure ready for testing.
Test & Perfect
Depending on the size of your environment, the testing phase could take anywhere between hours and weeks. During this time, you will have old and new systems running in parallel. Our Microsoft Data Platform consultant will put it through its paces and we recommend you do the same. If room for improvement is identified, we’ll make the necessary changes. Once you’re happy, we decommission the old system.
