I recently did a blog announcing the impending arrival of Azure Managed Instance and couple weeks later it was released in Preview. Many of us were excited to deploy a managed instance and today I want to share something I found out about managed instances in my first deployment.
If you’re at that point and are ready to deploy one, this video demo will give you a little heads up about what is going to happen when you first deploy your managed instance:
Now you may be thinking, why would I want to deploy this if it’s going to take that long? And my answer is, because of all the benefits that Azure Managed Instance will provide. It’s a SQL Server without having to worry about the OS and patching. Even though you must wait over a day for it to deploy, the benefits well outweigh the wait for this first deployment.
Remember, Azure Managed Instance is still in preview. Give Microsoft more time to let this exciting service they are providing to bake in and it will get better. If you’d like to learn more about Azure Managed Instance or anything Azure related, you’re in the right place. Click the link below or contact us—we’re here to help you on your Azure journey.
