Today at //BUILD, Microsoft announced a limited preview of the Azure Database Migration Service which will streamline the process for migrating on-premises databases to Azure. Using this new database migration service simplifies the migration of existing on-premises SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL databases to Azure, whether your target database is Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance or Microsoft SQL Server in an Azure virtual machine.
The automated workflow with assessment reporting, guides you through the necessary changes prior to performing the migration. When you are ready, the service will migrate the source database to Azure. For an opportunity to participate in the limited preview of this service, please sign up.
