This tutorial examines the Azure portal features for creating a new Azure SQL Database. You’ll see how to create a new SQL Server instance, configure the database settings and add a blank database.
- [Voiceover] I've logged into the Azure website…with my Microsoft account credentials,…the next step is to go to the Portal.…The Dashboard is the initial screen that you see…when you start up the Portal.…This is where you see an overview of your services.…Then on the left side of the screen…you can see some of the services that you've set up.…For instance, this would be where I see my App Services,…this is where I see my Virtual machines,…and for this demonstration,…it's also where we see our SQL databases.…Before I create a database let's talk about the actions…that you typically do in your own data center…to create a database.…
In your data center you'll have one or more servers…with the correct operating system installed,…then on that server you'll install a SQL server application,…once that's up and configured then you use a management tool…to connect to SQL server and add a database.…The steps are nearly identical…for creating a database inside Azure.…The machines are provided by Microsoft.…Microsoft will install SQL server on those machines…
