In this article, we will highlight SQL Server Data migration to Azure SQL (PaaS). You can find different approaches for this migration process because SQL Server offers different types of tools and features for this migration. Some of these are:
- Database Migration Assistant
- SQL Server Management Studio Deployment Wizard
- SQL Server to Azure SQL replication
These migration approaches have some pros and cons. But if you ask my opinion, Data Migration Assistant is better than others because, in this migration process, you will face fewer migration problems or issues. Data Migration Assistant will be more helpful to handle these issues.
In this article, we will specifically mention Database Migration Assistant, also known as DMA. At the same time, we will make a small demo of SQL Server Management Studio Deployment Wizard.
