Azure database services for MySQL and PostgreSQL are fully managed, enterprise-ready services built using community version of MySQL and PostgreSQL database engines respectively. These services come with built-in high availability and ability to elastically scale compute and storage independently in seconds, helping you to easily adjust resources and respond faster to market and customer demands. Additionally, you benefit from unparalleled security and compliance, Azure IP advantage, as well as Azure’s industry leading global reach.
Since we announced these services in preview last year, users have been providing feedback helping drive product improvements and new features. As part of executing on customer feedback, I am really excited to announce the changes to the pricing model that will provide customers with more flexibility and help optimize costs.
