Azure managed databases
Build cloud-native applications or modernize existing applications with fully managed, flexible databases. Focus on application development, not database management.
Simplify application development with fully managed databases
Choose among fully managed relational, NoSQL, and in-memory databases that span proprietary and open-source engines. Focus on building innovative applications while Azure makes your job simpler. Fully managed databases automate tasks like configuring and managing high availability, disaster recovery, backups, and data replication across regions, saving you time and money.
Work more productively and focus on application development while Azure takes care of database management. Optimize performance with built-in intelligence. Stay up and running with automatic feature updates and patches as well as the industry’s highest financially backed SLAs of up to 99.999% availability. Accelerate your database migration using Azure Migrate and Azure Database Migration Service.
Scale your application data across multiple nodes with Azure relational databases. Scale storage up to 100 TB with Azure SQL Database, and scale to hundreds of nodes with Azure Database for PostgreSQL. For NoSQL workloads, use Azure Cosmos DB and get industry-leading SLAs that guarantee throughput, consistency, availability, latency, and limitless scale for both compute and storage.
Choose from a wide array of relational and non-relational database engines, including popular open-source options. Take advantage of fully managed community editions of MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB, support for a wide range of tools and languages, and API compatibility with MongoDB, Cassandra, and Gremlin. Flexible compute options include serverless, provisioned compute, and pools. Azure is the only cloud to offer serverless compute for both SQL and NoSQL workloads.
Protect your data with built-in controls. These include data masking, encryption at rest and in motion, intelligent threat detection, and proactive vulnerability assessment that alerts and remediates potential threats in real time. Help safeguard your database with Azure Active Directory role-based access control. Use Azure Key Vault key management for essential protection of your data in the cloud.
