Recently we announced many exciting online migration scenarios which enable customers to perform migrations with source databases continue to be operational, and hence minimize downtime needed during the daunting migration effort. These migration scenarios include:-
- From SQL Server to Azure SQLDB online
- From SQL Server to Azure SQL DB Managed Instance online
- From MySQL to Azure Db for MySQL online
- From PostgreSQL to Azure Db for PostgreSQL online (CLI)
We are thrilled to announce that online migration for all four migration scenarios above are rolled out in 25 Azure regions (same regions as offline migrations). Please note that only Business Critical SKU supports online migration. For offline migration, you can use either General Purpose (1, 2 or 4 vCores) or Business Critical (4 vCores). Get more details of region availability here and SKU information here.
