Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Rag Dhiman, and welcome to my course titled Azure Arc Enabled SQL Server. I am an author at Pluralsight, and I've been developing and architecting software at a commercial level for well over 15 years. Along this time, I've learned the importance of having a clear view of your software and system's architecture. And in today's world of hybrid cloud, where we combine on‑premises architecture with cloud‑based architecture or even multi‑cloud based architecture, the importance of having a clear view of your software and system's architecture is even more of a requirement. The good news is cloud platforms, like the Azure cloud platform now have technologies like Azure Arc, which can centralize the management of software architecture in one place, regardless of location or platform. And in this course, we specifically look at Azure Arc‑enabled SQL Servers, which enables us to centralize the management of our SQL Servers in one place, the Azure portal, regardless of their actual location or platform. I can now see all my SQL Server instances inside the Azure portal that are actually physically outside of Azure on‑premises somewhere or on a different cloud platform. And within the Azure portal, because of the way they are integrated and supported, they almost feel like native Azure components and resources. And this kind of visibility and support greatly simplifies and centralizes the management of your software architecture. So the good news is not only does this course teach you the benefits of centralizing the management of your SQL Server instances within Azure, but it also teaches you how to achieve this using Azure Arc‑enabled SQL Server. So by the end of this course, you'll be fully skilled in implementing Azure Arc‑enabled SQL Servers. And before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Azure and SQL Server administration basics. So I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Azure Arc‑enabled SQL Server with this course at Pluralsight.
