Fully managed and always up-to-date

Spend more time innovating and less time patching, updating and backing up your databases. Azure is the only cloud with perennial SQL that automatically applies the latest updates and patches so your databases are always up to date, eliminating end-of-support issues. Even complex tasks such as performance tuning, high availability, disaster recovery and backups are automated, allowing you to focus on your applications.

Use your existing SQL experience in the cloud

Azure SQL is based on the same SQL Server technology that you are already familiar with, so there is no need to relearn your SQL skills when making the switch. Develop your application just once using your existing SQL skills and deploy it to any Azure SQL cloud database. And Azure is the only cloud with a consistent SQL codebase that extends from edge to cloud.
