In this 2-hour long tutorial, you will learn how to create, and configure a Microsoft Azure Database for MySQL server and database. We will do this by walking through the process of creating a free trial subscription on Azure, logging in and getting familiar with the Azure Portal. We will create a Resource Group in preparation for creating the Azure database and then step through the process of configuring and deploying an Azure Database for MySQL server. From here we will connect securely to the cloud based server and create a new database. We will then populate the database with some sample data, query and update the data using the MySQL command line tool. Once complete we will restore the database to a point in time using the Azure restore database process and finally clean up unused resources keeping costs to a minimum. The skills learned in this guided project provide the foundation to understanding and implementing Azure Relational Databases specifically in relation to MySQL which is a fully managed database offering from Microsoft Azure. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
