If you are considering the migration to Azure SQL Database, I suggest you read this white paper: Choosing your database migration path to Azure.

For more information, you can follow the Data Migration Team YouTube channel, you will find videos and tutorials on SQL Server Data Migration Tools.

This opportunity is perfect to remind you that SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 are out of maintenance, Microsoft will not release updates on these two products, not even security updates. You can find all details here!

You can also provide your feedback on Data Migration Tools and Services by writing to @Data_Migrations (datamigration at microsoft dot com).
