Why Migrate SQL Server to Azure

When making the decision to move SQL Server workloads to Azure, there are a series of questions that need to be answered.

  • Why are you migrating to Azure?
  • What are you going to migrate to Azure?
  • Where will you migrate in Azure?
  • How will migrate to Azure?
