Now you have learned what cloud migration is from the previous chapter, we can start to set it up. You do not need developer skills here, as everything performs with an assisted setup. Here, we will learn important things such as connection string construction and how to troubleshoot typical issues that could occur during the setup process. In addition, we will investigate how you can automate the setup process with cloud migration application programming interfaces (APIs).
