You deploy Azure App Service Web Apps that connect to on-premises Microsoft SQL Server instances by using Azure ExpressRoute. You plan to migrate the SQL Server instances to Azure.
Migration of the SQL Server instances to Azure must:
✑ Support automatic patching and version updates to SQL Server.
✑ Provide automatic backup services.
✑ Allow for high-availability of the instances.
✑ Provide a native VNET with private IP addressing.
✑ Encrypt all data in transit.
✑ Be in a single-tenant environment with dedicated underlying infrastructure (compute, storage).
You need to migrate the SQL Server instances to Azure.
Which Azure service should you use?
A. SQL Server in a Docker container running on Azure Container Instances (ACI)
B. SQL Server in Docker containers running on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
C. SQL Server Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) virtual machine (VM)
D. Azure SQL Database Managed Instance
E. Azure SQL Database with elastic pools
Correct Answer: D
Azure SQL Database Managed Instance configured for Hybrid workloads. Use this topology if your Azure SQL Database Managed Instance is connected to your on-premises network. This approach provides the most simplified network routing and yields maximum data throughput during the migration.
