(Bundle) Migrate Data Workloads to Azure Training

This course provides the knowledge and skills to migrate SQL, NoSQL and Open Source data workloads to Azure. The students will learn the objectives of data platform modernization and how it is suitable for given business requirements. They will also learn each stage of the data platform modernization process and define what tasks are involved at each stage, such as the assessment and planning phase. Students will also learn the available migration tools and how they are suitable for each stage of the data migration process. The student will learn how to migrate to the three target platforms for SQL based workloads; Azure Virtual Machines, Azure SQL Databases and Azure SQL Database Managed Instances . The student will learn the benefits and limitations of each target platform and how they can be used to fulfil both business and technical requirements for modern SQL  workloads. The student will explore the changes that may need to be made to existing SQL based applications, so that they can make best use of modern data platforms in Azure.


The students will  learn what is Cosmos DB and how you can migrate MongoDB and Cassandra workloads to Cosmos DB.


The students will learn what is required to migrate MySQL and PostgreSQL workloads to Azure SQL Database.

Objectives

  • Understand Data Platform Modernization

Audience

The audience for this course is data professionals and data architects who want to learn about migrating data platform technologies that exist on Microsoft Azure and how existing SQL, NoSQL and Open Source based workloads can be migrated and modernized. The secondary audience for this course is individuals who manage data platforms or develop applications that deliver content from the existing data platform technologies. Another audience is MySQL/Postgres administrators to raise awareness of the features and benefits of Azure SQL DB.
