Optimized for IoT gateways and devices, Azure SQL Edge extends the industry-leading performance and security of Microsoft SQL engine to the intelligent edge. This small but mighty database engine (<500 MB startup memory footprint) is backed by the same engine that powers Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL and combines all the goodness of the SQL Engine with all new IoT-specific capabilities such as:
data streaming and time series
in-database machine learning and graph capabilities
run on any ARM64- and x64-based devices (*Linux only during preview phase)
deploy connected, semi-connected or completely disconnected environments
By running the same Microsoft SQL database engine both on-premises and in the cloud, you can develop your applications once and deploy it anywhere across the edge, your datacenter, and Azure. No upskilling needed!
With the availability of Azure SQL Edge in public preview, we’re inviting customers, partners, and ISVs to get started today to experience the power of SQL and AI at the edge.
See how our customers in the early adopter program are using Azure SQL Edge to bring agility to their business and edge workloads, and get started with preview today.
