On 29th April 2016 Microsoft announced Active Geo-replication available on all Azure SQL Database service tiers.

Effective immediately, we’ve expanded our geo-replication features by enabling Active geo-replication across Azure SQL Database Basic and Standard service tiers. As a result, Standard geo-replication will be retired in April 2017. By using Active geo-replication in either a Basic database or a Standard database, customers receive numerous benefits that deliver greater security and business continuity in disaster situations:

  • Database-level disaster recovery goes quickly when you’ve replicated transactions to databases on different SQL Database servers in the same or different regions.
  • Cross-region redundancy allows applications to recover from permanent loss of a datacenter caused by natural disasters, catastrophic human errors, or malicious acts.
  • Online secondary databases are readable, and they can be used as load balancers for read-only workloads such as reporting.
  • With automatic asynchronous replication, after an online secondary database has been seeded, updates to the primary database are automatically copied to the secondary database.
