Perform SQL Database Backup and Recovery in Azure

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 already migrated multiple databases to both Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL Virtual Machines. Unfortunately, during the course of use, some data has been accidentally deleted from these databases. It is up to you as the DBA to recover this lost information and guard against future issues. Performing the actions of this lab will help you become familiar with SQL backup and recovery options in Azure.
