Introducing Mirroring Azure SQL Database in Fabric: Join the Public Preview Now! Archives – Microsoft 365 Today

Introduction

We are thrilled to announce the release of a new feature for Azure SQL Database, the mirroring function in Fabric for public release. This new feature is designed to provide seamless backup and redundancy capabilities, ensuring your data is protected and accessible at all times.

What is Azure SQL Database Mirroring?

Azure SQL Database mirroring is a function that creates primary and secondary database copies for high availability and failover purposes. The responsibility of this feature is to ensure that your business-critical database remains accessible even if the primary location becomes unavailable or experiences failure.

How Azure SQL Database Mirroring Works in Fabric?

Fabric is a service provided by Microsoft which integrates with Azure SQL Database for managing and orchestrating microservices deployed within your infrastructure. With the recent addition of the database mirroring feature, Fabric now holds the ability to automatically create, monitor, and manage the mirrored databases for you. Benefits include increased availability, enhanced data protection, and simplified disaster recovery procedures.

The Benefits of Database Mirroring

Database mirroring not only provides continuous data availability but also, the active operations, even during unplanned downtime. This feature accelerates problem recovery by rapidly switching over from a malfunctioning primary database to its mirrored pair.

High Availability & Disaster Recovery

By leveraging the Azure SQL Database mirroring function, businesses can create a robust disaster recovery plan while ensuring high availability of their databases. This approach helps mitigate the risks associated with loss of data, system downtime, and operational disruption.

Getting Started with Database Mirroring in Azure SQL

To take advantage of this feature, users will first need to set up their primary database in the Azure SQL platform. Once the primary database is up and running, mirroring can be enabled in the Fabric service, creating a secondary database that is constantly synced with the primary location.

Time to Embrace Safe Database Management

From small businesses to multinational corporations, ensuring the availability and security of data should be a top priority. By leveraging Azure SQL Database mirroring feature in Fabric, businesses can alleviate the risk of data loss and maintain smooth operations with increased robustness.
