“We don’t have to worry about what the web server is doing or if the log file is filling up. Azure Database for MySQL just abstracts everything to the PaaS layer and we don’t have to manage the server itself. It makes life easier.”

“The biggest benefit of Azure Database for MySQL will be to have Microsoft manage and backup that resource for us so that we can focus on other aspects of the site. Plus, we will have the ability to scale up and down temporarily as traffic surges and then bringing it back down when it is not needed. That is a big deal for us.”
