Microsoft has now taken the public wraps off its sync service that allows organizations to store SQL Server data in two locations – both on-premises and in the cloud. This gives organizations redundancy should a connection to Azure be faulty or down. It allows companies to take a hybrid approach to storing and using SQL Server data.
We are delighted to announce the general availability (GA) of Azure SQL Data Sync! Azure SQL Data Sync allows you to synchronize data between Azure SQL Database and any other SQL endpoints unidirectionally or bidirectionally. It enables hybrid SQL deployment and allows local data access from both Azure and on-premises application. It also allows you to deploy your data applications globally with a local copy of data in each region, and keep data synchronized across all the regions. It will significantly improve the application response time and reliability by eliminating the impact of network latency and connection failure rate.
