General availability: DR secondary free with SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines

Published date: 16 November, 2022

With your pay-as-you-go account, you now have a high-availability secondary and a disaster recovery secondary server for your SQL Server on Virtual Machines at no additional licence cost. With the new high availability/disaster recovery benefit, you can license up to two passive secondaries for free. The only licence cost for them would be the primary and not for their secondary instances.
