Azure Arc-enabled SQL MI – More than just another kind of SQL Server

Join us, as we explore the capabilities of Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instances.

We will start with a quick introduction of Azure Arc-enabled Data Services: What are they and what do you need to deploy them?

After that, we’ll focus on Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instances and how they provide much more than just another SQL Server deployment, from evergreen versions through managed updates, peace of mind through managed backups and restores, flexibility through their pay as you go model and more!

You will leave not only with a solid understanding of their capabilities but also the scripts and tools to deploy and manage Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instances today!
