I’ve been thinking about the cloud a lot lately, and I feel it’s an area that I would benefit from learning more about. I’ve attended a couple of presentations on SQL Managed Instances and have read enough to be dangerous (or accidentally spend a lot of money, one of my biggest fears when working in the cloud). However, I always find I learn best and really get to understanding a topic by building something.
This post will be the first in at least a two part series on SQL Managed Instances (MI). My goal in this post is just to deploy an MI and have it ready to use for my next post.
Read on for the step-by-step instructions.
