We’re excited to announce the public preview of Azure Database for MySQL and Azure Database for PostgreSQL in Canada (Central and East) and Brazil (Brazil South) data centers. The availability of Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL services in Canada and Brazil provides app developers the ability to choose from an even larger number of geographical regions and deploy their favorite database on Azure, without the complexity of managing and administering the databases.
The Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL, built using the community editions of MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, offers built-in high availability, security, and scaling on the fly with minimal downtime. This is achieved with an inclusive pricing model that enables developers to simply focus on developing apps. In addition, you can seamlessly migrate your existing apps without any changes and continue using existing tools.

Solutions and samples
You can access sample PostgreSQL applications on GitHub, allowing you to deploy our sample Day Planner app, using node.js or Ruby on Rails, on your own Azure subscription with a backend PostgreSQL database. The Day Planner app is a sample application that can be used to manage your day-to-day engagements. The app marks engagements, displays routes between them, and showcases the distance and time required to reach the next engagement.
We also support deploying Azure Web Apps with a MySQL database backend as a template on GitHub.
Developers can accomplish seamless connectivity for our PostgreSQL and MySQL services using native tools that they are used to. Developers can also continue to develop using Python, node.js, Java, PHP, or any programming language of their choice. We support development with your favorite open source frameworks such as Djnago and Flask, among others. The service will work seamlessly. If you have a sample application that you would like to host on our GitHub repo, or even have suggestions and feedback about our sample applications, please feel free to submit a pull request and become a contributor on our repo. We love working with our community to provide ready-to-go applications for the community at large.
As with all new feature releases, we would love to receive your feedback. Feel free to leave comments below. You can also engage with us directly through User Voice, PostgreSQL and MySQL, if you have suggestions on how we can further improve the service.
