This book is ideal for IT professionals who have some experience with SQL Server or Database but are looking for a rich hands-on resource with guidance to explore each of the Azure SQL administrator concepts and the solutions the cloud provider offers.

“Azure SQL Database named among the top 3 databases of 2020 according to DB-Engines..”

Azure SQL Database is primarily for SQL DBAs who are dipping their feet into the cloud world since Cloud services are becoming the de-facto platform for agile development and implementation. Numerous companies worldwide are now drifting to cloud solutions, and Microsoft Azure is one of the prominent ones.

The book is primarily designed for Cloud DBAs (with ample knowledge of SQL server) who are new to Azure and want to have a solid start and get an in-depth glimpse on advanced topics that will help them to solve day to day issues plus effectively support the Azure databases. Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure takes readers through a complete tour of understanding of fundamental Azure concepts, Azure SQL administration, Azure Management tools and techniques. This book will give an edge over to clear DP 300 exam. Increasingly, we continue to flood with information about the importance of the cloud. Cloud computing is everywhere, but not everyone knows exactly what it is and where to get started.

We try to focus more on Azure SQL and give you the foundational understanding of what the cloud really is and tell you how some of these cloud technologies can work for you, and direct you to improve your knowledge and get certified with hassle-free learning. If you find it is for you, you will pick up useful tricks and tips for making a move to the cloud as seamless as possible.
