General availability: Stop/start functionality for Azure Database for MySQL
Published date: 03 February, 2021
General availability support of database stop/start functionality for Azure Database for MySQL is now available. With this functionality, you can stop the database server when not in use (during non-work hours) and start it when it is back online. This could be helpful when using Azure Database for MySQL for dev/test scenarios to save on costs by turning off the server compute when not in use.
