With that services, customer get high availability and automatic update & patching database, who will simplify the customer to running their application without big effort to managed the database server.​

What we can do to start their transformation? We start how their existing on-premises environment and assess the risk when we migrate the environment to Microsoft Azure especially for the database.​

And for the migration we use Azure Data Migration (DMS) to migrate the database.
