Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server in preview
Published date: September 22, 2020
Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server is a new deployment option for Azure Database for MySQL that provides better control and flexibility of database server parameters, more options for high availability, and cost optimization controls.
Flexible Server offers maximum control through custom maintenance windows and additional configuration parameters for fine grained tuning. Now you can benefit from zone redundant high availability and control the timing for patches and upgrades. In addition, guided experiences simplify end-to-end deployment.
Optimize your total cost of ownership using burstable instances for your servers and stop/start capability, which enable you to only pay for compute when the server is in use. Flexible Server is also fully compatible with community MySQL, is available with MySQL 5.7, and can be used for internet scale web and mobile applications.
