Azure SQL Database Managed Instance


TOPIC: Azure SQL Database Managed Instance – The Better Alternative to Azure SQL Database or SQL Server in a VM?

With Azure SQL Database Managed Instance Microsoft brings a new offer for the Data Platform, which can be regarded as hybrid between PaaS and IaaS.

In this session, we'll look at how this new database provisioning option compares to Azure SQL Database and SQL Server in a VM to answer the questions: What are the benefits, what may be missing for one or the other, and for which scenarios does the Managed Instance make the most sense?
