What is SQL Azure database?

SQL Azure database is only a method of connecting to cloud services and storing your database in the cloud. Microsoft Azure is the best option for PaaS since it allows you to have many databases on the same account.

In the core, Microsoft SQL Azure is comparable to SQL Server in terms of accessibility, adaptability, and security.

A feature of the Microsoft Azure SQL database is that it automatically backs up each active database. To enable the 1-hour recovery point objective (RPO) for Geo-Restore, a backup is taken and geo-repeated on a regular basis.

Azure SQL Database is a cloud-computing database service (Database as a Service), that is offered by Microsoft Azure Platform which helps to host and use a relational SQL database in the cloud without requiring any hardware or software installation.

Azure SQL Database is a fully managed platform as a service (PaaS) database engine that handles most of the database management functions such as upgrading, patching, backups, and monitoring without user involvement.
