Make building and maintaining applications easier and more productive. With built-in intelligence that learns app patterns and adapts to maximize performance, reliability, and data protection, SQL Database is a cloud database built for developers.
As your app runs, SQL Database continuously learns your unique app patterns, adaptively tunes performance, and automatically improves reliability and data protection—freeing you to focus on your app.
When demand for your app grows from a handful of devices and customers to millions, SQL Database is a database as a service that can scale along with you, on the fly, with virtually no app downtime.
If you’re an SaaS app developer writing a multitenant app servicing many customers, you often make tradeoffs in customer performance, management, and security. With SQL Database as your SaaS platform, you no longer have to make that compromise. SQL Database helps you manage and monitor multitenant apps and gain isolation benefits of one-customer-per-database.
SQL Database allows you to focus on what you do best: building great apps. Develop your app and connect to SQL Database with the tools and platforms you prefer, and deliver with the speed and efficiency your business demands.
SQL Database helps you build security-enhanced apps in the cloud by providing built-in protection and security features. With physical and operational security, Azure SQL Database helps you meet the most stringent regulatory compliances.
