Chapter 4. Migrating databases

Eric Boyd

In our experience helping customers develop and migrate applications to Microsoft Azure, there has always been a need to migrate data along with those applications, even for “all new development” projects. So you really need to know about the solutions that are available for migrating your data to SQL Database and to understand their strengths and weaknesses. In this chapter, you will work with multiple tools and techniques for migrating data to SQL Database, including Transact-SQL (T-SQL) scripts, SQL Data-Tier Applications (BACPAC), bulk copy (bcp), and the SQL Database Migration Wizard.
