We have 100+ database on On-premise SQL Server 2008 and SQL server 2017. Now, we need to migrate these large number of database to Azure SQL Database but Online DMS is deprecated (confirmed by Microsoft Support).
What is the workaround for this situation as we were planning to migrate using online DMS. We can use offline DMS but customer can't afford large downtime.

Azure SQL Database

    @Sarvesh Pandey Online migration using Azure Database Migration Service is not deprecated.
    We even have a preview site for customers to sign up for a private preview of DMS and help us build more migration scenarios.

    Please provide the Support request number so that we can check this internally and take necessary action to prevent any gaps in communication.
