Azure SQL and Azure Data Factory

Many people are familiar with SQL Server and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). These are services that global enterprise customers love for all their data and data integration scenarios.

Azure is a great place for SQL Server workloads. The Azure SQL family of SQL cloud databases provides flexible options for application migration, modernization, and development. The Azure SQL family is comprised of SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machine, Azure SQL Managed Instance, Azure SQL Database, and Azure SQL Edge, all of which are based on the same core SQL Server engine. Migrate your SQL Server workloads to Azure SQL and improve your total cost of ownership (TCO), accelerate your time to market, and operate more efficiently.

Azure Data Factory is a fully managed, serverless data integration solution for ingesting, preparing, and transforming all your data at scale. In addition, you can re-host your SSIS packages using Azure Data Factory, enabling you to realize significant costs savings. Azure Data Factory enables you to bring data from diverse and multiple data sources to Azure SQL and more.

At the digital event, occurring around the clock, you will meet and interact live with many members of the Microsoft Azure Data product group including industry experts Bob Ward, Buck Woody, Davide Mauri, Julie Koesmarno, Silvano Coriani, Mara-Florina Steiu, Arvind Shyamsundar, Anna Hoffman, Srini Acharya, Drew Skwiers-Koballa, Andreas Wolter, Mark Kromer, Sandy Winarko, Wee Hyong Tok, Ye Xu, Abhishek Narain, Linda Wang, Shirley Wang and more!
