This 1-300-level, live, online training class is designed to help you justify, plan, and implement a successful upgrade and migration from a legacy version of SQL Server to SQL Server 2017, with a wealth of practical techniques that you can use as soon as you return to work. Our aim is that you can apply what we teach you to any upgrade and migration situation and justify your solution to your peers, management, or clients (yes, we welcome SQL Server consultants in our classes).
We’ll start by covering license, feature, and performance differences between SQL Server 2017 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition and you’ll get extremely useful information about new features in SQL Server 2016 and 2017 to help you make the technical and business case for an upgrade. We’ll show detailed information about how to select and configure your hardware and storage to maximize your performance and minimize your SQL Server license costs, whether it is deployed bare-metal on-premises, virtualized on-premises, or in a Windows Azure VM (IaaS).
We’ll next cover how to properly install and configure SQL Server 2017 for the best performance and reliability and explain and demonstrate how to use the Microsoft Data Migration Assistant and the Microsoft Database Experimentation Assistant to help discover issues that could prevent a successful upgrade and migration. Finally, you’ll learn how to plan for the migration to the new instance and the various methods you can use to migrate successfully with minimal downtime and no data loss, plus essential post-migration tasks.
All these topics will be addressed on multiple fronts: with planning and implementation considerations and techniques, common problems, troubleshooting, and multiple demonstrations. By dedicating only 3 half-days of your time for 9 hours of lecture and up to 4.5 hours of open Q&A, this is an amazing ROI while you can still get work done during your day!
This class will cover SQL Server 2005 through SQL Server 2017, and is essential for anyone responsible for upgrading to one of the latest SQL Server versions.
This class is delivered live via online streaming.
