About Microsoft Azure SQL Database
Microsoft Azure SQL Database is a relational database service in the cloud based on the market-leading Microsoft SQL Server engine, with mission-critical capabilities.
SQL Database delivers predictable performance, scalability with no downtime, business continuity and data protection—all with near-zero administration.
You can focus on rapid app development and accelerating your time to market, rather than managing virtual machines and infrastructure.
Because it's based on the SQL Server engine, SQL Database supports existing SQL Server tools, libraries and APIs, which makes it easier for you to move and extend to the cloud.
