  1. Active Geo-Replication (like SQL Database)

    For enterprise companies, business continuity and disaster recovery are one of the most important features. We cannot stop our services even when the region failure happens.

    Cross-region read replicas are now available in public preview. You can create up to five read-only replicas in any region supported by the MySQL service.

    To get started, please use the Azure portal to select the location for your read replica: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-read-replicas-portal#create-a-read-replica

    Thanks,
    Andrea Lam on behalf of the Azure DB for MySQL team

  2. MySQL release version 8.x

    Version 8.x is the next stable release of MySQL and we would like to stay on Azure but we do need a better performing database with more JSON support.
    MariaDB latest stable would also be good enough.

    Support for up to five read-only replicas within the same region is now in public preview. This feature is aimed to scale out read-heavy workloads.

    Check out the documentation to learn more about replicas:
    - Overview: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/concep..
    - How to create replicas from the portal: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-..

    Azure CLI support will be following shortly.

  4. Audit MySQL Database

    Do we have any option like server-level or database level Auditing in MySQL in Azure?
    Also is Azure following any security baseline for MySQL databases?

    wait_timeout and table_open_cache are now available to be changed in the service.

    To learn how to change the parameter values, view the docs:
    - Using the Azure portal: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-server-parameters
    - Using the Azure CLI: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-configure-server-parameters-using-cli

  6. Allow upgrading of the pricing tier

    It would be great if I could switch pricing tiers of Azure Database for MySQL Basic -> General Purpose -> Memory Optimized. I'd much prefer to start on a less expensive tier and as usage increases move to higher pricing tiers like other Azure services.

    We now support the ability to move between General Purpose and Memory Optimized pricing tiers. We’ve also enabled the ability to switch hardware generations within pricing tiers.

    See the service update for more details: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/general-availability-scaling-across-tiers-in-azure-database-for-mysql/

  7. Allow editing Parameters from ARM templates.

    It would be nice to be able to modify the server parameters while deploying with the ARM templates.

    We are currently working publishing some updated ARM templates in our sample GitHub repository to show how to change the parameter values from ARM. In the meantime, you can do something like the below:

    “resources”: [
    {
    “type”: “configurations”,
    “name”: “div_precision_increment”,
    “apiVersion”: “2017-12-01″,
    “location”: “centralus”,
    “properties”: {
    “value”: “6″,
    “source”: “user-override”
    }
    }
    ]
