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

@Andrea Lam, Yes Read Replicas are available. However in an event of disaster I have to change my code to point to the replica. This should be seamless. Something like a proxy in front and once a disaster happens proxy should route to the secondary, by this approach we don't have to change our code line. This feature is highly needed for mysql would suggest pg team to look after this.Anonymous supported this idea ·
