Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Tim Warner. Welcome to my course, Migrating Physical and Virtual Servers to Microsoft Azure. I'm a Pluralsight staff author, Microsoft MVP, and Azure solutions architect. Your business may have plans to migrate its Hyper-V or VMware virtual machines into Azure. The company may also have physical hosts that need the lift and shift treatment. How do you get started? This course gives you a thorough grounding in using Azure Site Recovery to migrate physical and virtual machines into the Microsoft Azure cloud. By the end of the course, you'll understand from start to finish how ASR orchestrates the physical and virtual machine replication, failover, and migration processes. You'll also know how to use Microsoft database migration tools to move SQL Server workloads into Azure SQL database, and other Azure database hosting platforms. I hope you'll join me on this journey to master workload migration in our Migrating Physical and Virtual Servers to Microsoft Azure course at Pluralsight.
