Virtual Instructor-Led Training (V-ILT)

Virtual instruction environments are designed to simulate the traditional classroom or learning experience. Instructor-led training is still the number one delivery method of choice because it allows you to interact and discuss the training material, either individually or in a group setting, and you gain access to expert knowledge from certified instructors. This form of guided learning is impactful and produces positive learning outcomes. Day, evening and Saturday classes are offered.

Module 4: Configuring SQL Server on Linux

Once a Microsoft SQL Server on Linux instance is installed, you must configure it. Since SQL Server on Linux does not include a Linux-native GUI tool for configuring SQL Server settings, you must use command-line tools and options to configure aspects of the SQL Server behavior. This module covers configuring SQL Server on Linux and SQL Server on Linux Docker containers.

  • Configuring SQL Server with mssql-conf
  • Configure a SQL Server on Linux Docker image

+ See more details

Module 5: Managing Database Solutions for SQL Server for Linux

Once you have installed and configured Microsoft SQL Server on Linux, you need to know how to connect to your SQL Server on Linux instance, both to manage SQL Server and to connect your applications to SQL Server. In this module, you will learn about several ways that developers and administrators can connect to SQL Server instances running on Linux.

  • Connecting to SQL Server on Linux
  • Managing SQL Server on Linux

Module 6: Migrating Databases to SQL Server on Linux and Disaster Recovery

Once you are familiar with the basic operation of Microsoft SQL Server on Linux, you are likely to need to import data. The data you import might take the form of whole databases that you are migrating to SQL Server on Linux from SQL Server on Windows, or from another RDBMS. You might also need to import data to or export data from individual tables or groups of tables in your databases. This module introduces various techniques for moving data and databases to and from SQL Server on Linux.

  • Backup and restore
  • Database export and import
  • SQL Server migration assistant
  • Bulk copy program
  • SQL Server integration services

Lab : Explore an Excel Data Model

  • Migrate a database with backup and restore
  • Migrate a database with SQL Server migration assistant

Module 7: High Availability

SQL Server on Linux can power mission-critical database systems with high-availability technologies at several different granularities. Log shipping provides high availability for single databases. Failover clustering provides automatic failover and redundancy for SQL Server instances. Availability groups provide high availability, disaster recovery, and read load balancing for groups of databases. This module covers configuring these technologies for SQL Server on Linux.

  • Log shipping
  • Failover clustering
  • Availability groups

Lab : High availability

  • Configure log shipping
  • Create a read-scale availability group
