Cross-region asynchronous replication is now in preview for Azure Database for MariaDB. Create up to five read-only replica servers for every master server to scale out and balance read-heavy workloads across replica servers and Azure regions. Take advantage of this feature to maintain business continuity in disaster recovery scenarios. Note that stopping replication to a read replica causes it to become a standalone server that accepts reads and writes.
Azure Database for MariaDB now provides preview support for using audit logs to record database activity and events such as connections, queries, etc. These logs are integrated with Azure Monitor Diagnostic Logs to allow users to retain logs in Azure Storage, perform analysis with Azure Monitor Logs, and integrate with third-party tools via Event Hubs.
Azure Database for MariaDB support for MariaDB server version 10.3 is now available to the public. Features include temporal data processing and Oracle compatibility, as well as enhancements to compatibility, compression, encryption, and performance. Take advantage of this new engine version and the features introduced by creating a new Azure Database for MariaDB server and selecting version 10.3.
Azure Database for MariaDB now provides preview support for Intelligent Performance, which includes query store, query performance Insights, and performance recommendations. This set of features provides the ability to better understand your workloads, identify bottlenecks, and visually inspect your workloads.
Azure Database for MariaDB now provides preview support for asynchronous replication of data from one Azure Database for MariaDB server (the ‘master’) to up to five Azure Database for MariaDB servers (the ‘replicas’) in the same region.
Azure Database for MariaDB users can now take advantage of generally available support for slow query log integration with Azure Monitor, which allows you to export your logs to Azure Monitor logs (previously named Log Analytics), Event Hubs, and Azure Storage. Use this integration to retain the logs for a longer period of time by storing them in Azure Storage, stream them to Event Hubs to be ingested by third-party services, or analyze them with Azure Monitor logs.
zure Database for MariaDB now supports scaling up compute to 64 vCores in the general purpose pricing tiers and 32 vCores in the memory optimized tiers. With this increase in compute, the service supports even larger workloads and helps you to accommodate future growth.
