Do you have an idea or suggestion based on your experience with Azure Database for MySQL?

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

    Any updates on this. We are having Business continuity conversation with Enterprise customer on Azure MySQL and this feature can really help us sell this product better.
    Any updates would be appreciated.

    Is there any update on this? Originally it was stated to be ready 'H2 2018'. We are into 2019 and no updates.

    Is there any update on when Active Geo-Replication for Azure Database for MySQL will be available?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Does Azure DB for MySQL now support geo-replication and its multiple read-only secondary like Read Replica in AWS? It's been obviously way more than a few months by now.

    Understood. Geo-Replication is definitely is definitely a very important feature. It is in development, and will be available before GA.
