Point-in-time restore retention for Standard tier extended to 35 days
Updated: June 28, 2016
For Azure SQL Database, we automatically take backups so you can restore from the unintended deletion or modification of data. We're excited to announce that all Standard-tier databases and Standard-tier elastic database pools now have 35 days of retention built in, at no extra charge. This change reflects our goal of providing a consistent user experience across service tiers.
