Let’s Discuss Migrating to the Cloud!

It’s that time again!

Our next #SQLChat will take place Wednesday, March 15 at 11 AM CT with Mike Fal. Mike will be leading a discussion on how to migrate to the cloud.

Whether your company is considering Azure, Amazon Web Services, the Google Cloud, or any of the other providers, you will need a cloud strategy. However, with the cloud comes a different way of thinking.

Mike will discuss the different options for cloud migration, that include Platform-as-a-Service, hybrid cloud footprints, disaster recovery, and many other facets of using the cloud. Participants will discuss what you should consider as you navigate your own cloud migration strategy.

This #SQLChat will allow members from the SQL community to discuss SQL Server’s biggest topics with IDERA product experts, and have a chance to win a giveaway prize. This month’s giveaway prize is $100 Gift Card to Spotify which you can exchange for membership and more!
