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.
