General availability: Scaling across tiers in Azure Database for MySQL
Posted on Thursday, June 14, 2018
Azure Database for MySQL now supports these capabilities in all available regions:
- Scaling between hardware generations within services tiers
- Scaling between general-purpose and memory-optimized service tiers
The ability to scale across service tiers gives you more flexibility in adjusting the resources available to your database server for dynamically changing workloads. Scaling between hardware generations enables you to take advantage of the newer hardware generation for servers previously created in the older hardware generation.

It would be great if I could switch pricing tiers of Azure Database for MySQL Basic -> General Purpose -> Memory Optimized. I'd much prefer to start on a less expensive tier and as usage increases move to higher pricing tiers like other Azure services.Brad Hager
