  • HI ALL,

    We have 40 GB of Data, we want to copy 40 GB data having multiple Tables.

    we need to do a incremental load from On-Prem SQL server to Azure SQL.

  • Hello Manish,

    I am assuming 40GB is an initial load and the incremental load wouldn't be that huge. Is this assumption right?

    You can use Azure Data Factory (ADF) to easily implement the same. A tutorial is here

  • Thanks for replay,

    we don't have timestamp column in table

  • Comparing 40 gigs of data with a checksum or rowversion would be very compute intensive and time consuming.

    Can you add a timestamp column to your tables with an update trigger?

    Do you have primary keys that are auto increment or sequential guids?

  • Hi Manish,

    I am going to recommend Kalyan's feedback but if there is a specific solution you choose to implement, please detail this here so that others can potentially find a solution to their similar issue.
