Action required: Migrate to Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server by 16 September 2024

Published date: September 30, 2022

On 16 September 2024, Azure Database for MySQL Single Server will be retired, and you'll need to migrate to Flexible Server by that date.

Flexible Server is a new, fully managed, production-ready database service that offers multiple improvements over Single Server, including:

  • More ways to optimize costs, including support for burstable tier compute options.
  • Improved performance for business-critical production workloads that require low latency, high concurrency, fast failover, and high scalability.
  • Improved uptime with the ability to configure a hot standby on the same or a different zone, and a one-hour time window for planned server maintenance.
