Migrating on-perm Enterprise Geodatabase SQL Server instance to Azure SQL DB

Discussion created by gmylsamy on Jun 1, 2020

Hello All,

 

Does esri has any enterprise geodatabase migration related documents. We are planning to migrate our on-perm Enterprise Geodatabase SQL Server instance to Azure SQL DB. We are currently using ArcGIS 10.6.1 and we plan to move cloud with 10.8. I got the following option. 

 

  1. Full database backup and restore: 
  2. Create new geodatabase in Azure SQL and use copy tool to migrate the data from old DB.

Please let me know if there is any better approach.

 

Regards,

G
