Azure Database for MySQL should be highly available, it is not currently.
assume that most databases are required to be online 100% of the time - currently Azure Database for MySQL is restarted at Microsoft's will to perform updates.
There is no failover feature so these updates cause the DB to go offline.
This should not happen.
Chen Peng commented
The mainstream MySQL databases all support automatic failover, only Azure does not support it, and customers urgently need it.

Does it mean this is not recommended for production of a high availability application?
