Published date: November 15, 2023

We are pleased to announce the public preview of  online disaster recovery between SQL Server 2022 and Azure SQL Managed Instance with the link feature in Azure SQL Managed Instance.

The link feature connects SQL Server 2022, hosted anywhere. and the fully managed platform as a service (PaaS) service, Azure SQL Managed Instance, providing unprecedented hybrid flexibility and database mobility. With near real-time data replication to Azure using Always On technology, you can now scale workloads or analytics to read-only secondaries in Azure to take advantage of a fully managed database platform, performance, and scale.

Ensure uptime in any of the 60+ Azure global regions with the managed online disaster recover (DR) feature connecting SQL Server 2022 to Azure SQL Managed Instance. When using Azure SQL Managed Instance as a passive DR replica in Azure you can take advantage of failover rights benefit to have a license-free discount for Azure SQL Managed Instance. Managed DR allows you to spend less time on setup and management compared to an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environment.
