What is Fully Managed in the Cloud

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Record numbers of businesses are investing in as-a-Service (XaaS) infrastructures and moving parts (or all) of their IT infrastructure to public clouds. Many of these same businesses are moving their databases to the cloud as part of this trend. Why?

This means that operators are increasingly managing ‘hybrid’ IT environments – that is, a mix of off-premises services and privately owned, internal ‘on-premises’ data center capacity.

Cloud Migration Guide: SQL Server to AWS

whitePaper | May 30, 2021

The Microsoft Data Platform technology landscape is rapidly advancing, with increased release cadence and new capabilities regularly added. Businesses need to evolve their data platform strategies—migrating to the cloud is a key pillar of this strategy.
