Azure Database Migration Service – March Update


We are pleased to announce the latest update to the Public Preview release of the Azure Database Migration Service (Azure DMS): Support for migrations from SQL Server to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance!

Azure DMS now supports on-premises SQL Server database migrations to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.

Azure DMS reduces the complexity of cloud migrations via the use of a single, comprehensive service. Azure DMS supports migrations of homogeneous/heterogeneous source-target pairs, and the guided migration process is easy to understand and implement.

Using Azure DMS to perform a migration is a simple as following these high-level steps:

  1. Create an instance of Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.
  2. Create an instance of the Azure Database Migration Service.
  3. Create a migration project using the Azure Database Migration Service.
  4. Run the migration.
  5. Monitor the migration.
