Public preview: License Geo-redundant Disaster Recovery for SQL Managed Instance for free
Published date: November 16, 2022
You can now add a free passive secondary instance in another Azure region for no additional license cost, allowing you to have an up to date secondary at all times. Instantaneous fail-over drills are included in this benefit; however, production applications should not be connected to the secondary instance. This new benefit adds cost effective geo-redundancy to your business continuity plans in the case of failover in one region.
