Establish a Maintenance Plan on SQL Server

In this hands-on lab scenario, your organization, Awesome Company, is reducing its on-site footprint and moving as many databases as possible to the cloud. As part of this effort, you have provisioned an Azure SQL Server virtual machine and are in the process of moving a sales database there. This database requires particular maintenance on a regular basis, so you need to set up a mechanism for automating these tasks. Performing the actions of this lab will help you become familiar with using maintenance plans to automate SQL Server maintenance tasks.
