什么是 Azure SQL 数据库服务What is Azure SQL Database service

Azure SQL 数据库是一种常规用途关系数据库托管服务,可用来为 Azure 云中的应用程序和解决方案创建高可用性和高性能数据存储层。Azure SQL Database is a general-purpose relational database managed service that enables you to create a highly-available and high-performance data storage layer for the applications and solutions in Azure cloud. SQL 数据库可成为各种新式云应用程序的正确选择,因为它可让你使用强大的功能来处理关系数据和非关系结构(例如图形、JSON、空间和 XML)。SQL Database can be the right choice for a variety of modern cloud applications because it enables you to use powerful functionalities for processing both relational data and non-relational structures such as graphs, JSON, spatial, and XML. SQL 数据库基于 Microsoft SQL Server 数据库引擎的最新稳定版本,可让你使用丰富的高级查询处理功能集,例如高性能内存中技术智能查询处理It is based on the latest stable version of the Microsoft SQL Server database engine and enables you to use rich set of advanced query processing features such as high performance in-memory technologies and Intelligent query processing. 利用 Microsoft 的云优先策略,首先将 SQL Server 的最新功能发布到 SQL 数据库,然后再发布到 SQL Server 本身。With Microsoft's cloud-first strategy, the newest capabilities of SQL Server are released first to SQL Database, and then to SQL Server itself. 此方法可为你提供 SQL Server 的最新功能,这些新功能已经过数百万个数据库的测试且无任何修补或升级开销。This approach provides you with the newest SQL Server capabilities with no overhead for patching or upgrading - and with these new features tested across millions of databases. 使用 SQL 数据库可在两个不同的购买模型中轻松定义和缩放性能:基于 vCore 的购买模型基于 DTU 的购买模型SQL Database enables you to easily define and scale performance within two different purchasing models: a vCore-based purchasing model and a DTU-based purchasing model. SQL 数据库是完全托管型服务,提供内置的可用性、备份和其他常见维护操作。SQL Database is fully-managed service that has built-in high-availablility, backups, and other common maintenance operations. Azure 可无缝处理 SQL 和 OS 代码的所有修补和更新,并且不需要用户进行任何底层基础结构管理。Azure handles all patching and updating of the SQL and OS code seamlessly and abstracts away all management of the underlying infrastructure.

部署模型Deployment models

Azure SQL 数据库提供下述适用于 Azure SQL 数据库的部署选项:Azure SQL Database provides the following deployment options for an Azure SQL database:


  • 单一数据库表示完全托管的独立数据库,对于需要单个可靠数据源的新式云应用程序和微服务,它是完美的选择。Single database represents a fully-managed isolated database that is perfect choice for the modern cloud applications and microservices that need a single reliable data source. 单一数据库类似于 Microsoft SQL Server 数据库引擎包含的数据库A single database is similar to a contained database in Microsoft SQL Server database engine.
  • 托管实例Microsoft SQL Server 数据库引擎的完全托管型实例,其中包含一组可结合使用的数据库。Managed instance is a fully-managed instance of the Microsoft SQL Server database engine containing a set of databases that can be used together. 若要轻松将本地 SQL Server 数据库迁移到 Azure 云,或者对于需要利用 SQL Server 数据库引擎提供的强大的数据库功能的应用程序,托管实例都是完美的选择。It is a perfect choice for easy migration of on-premises SQL Server databases to Azure cloud and for applications that need to leverage powerful database features that SQL Server Database Engine provides.
  • 弹性池单一数据库的集合,其中包含一组共享的资源(例如 CPU 或内存)。Elastic pool is a collection of Single databases with a shared set of resources such as CPU or memory. 可以将单一数据库移入或移出弹性池。Single databases can be moved into and out of an elastic pool.


若要了解 SQL 数据库与 SQL Server 的功能差异,以及不同 Azure SQL 数据库部署选项的区别,请参阅 SQL 功能To understand the feature differences between SQL Database and SQL Server, as well as the differences between different Azure SQL Database deployment options, see SQL features.

SQL 数据库通过多个资源类型、服务层级和计算大小提供可预测的、动态可缩放的性能,主要表现在:无停机时间、内置智能优化、全局可伸缩性和可用性,以及高级安全选项 - 一切几乎不用人工管理。SQL Database delivers predictable performance with multiple resource types, service tiers, and compute sizes that provides dynamic scalability with no downtime, built-in intelligent optimization, global scalability and availability, and advanced security options - all with near-zero administration. 凭借这些功能,客户可将注意力集中在如何快速进行应用开发、加快推向市场,而无需将宝贵的时间和资源投入在管理虚拟机和基础结构上。These capabilities allow you to focus on rapid app development and accelerating your time to market, rather than allocating precious time and resources to managing virtual machines and infrastructure. SQL 数据库服务目前在世界各地有 38 个数据中心,且有更多数据中心定期上线,因此你可以在附近的数据中心运行数据库。The SQL Database service is currently in 38 data centers around the world, with more data centers coming online regularly, which enables you to run your database in a data center near you.

可缩放的性能和池Scalable performance and pools

可以使用各种风格的 SQL 数据库来定义要分配的资源量。All flavors of SQL Database enable you to define the amount of resources that will be assigned.

  • 使用单一数据库,每个数据库相互隔离且可移植,每个数据库都有自己有保证的计算、内存和存储资源量。With single databases, each database is isolated from each other and portable, each with its own guaranteed amount of compute, memory, and storage resources. 分配给数据库的资源量专门用于该数据库,而不会与 Azure 云中的其他数据库共享。The amount of the resources that is assigned to the database is dedicated to that database and will not be shared with other databases in Azure cloud. 你还可以动态扩展和缩减单一数据库资源It also gives you the ability to dynamically scale single database resources up and down. 单一数据库提供不同的计算、内存和存储资源(1 到 80 个 vCore、32 GB 到 4 TB 存储等等)来满足不同的需求。借助单一数据库的“超大规模”服务层级,可以通过快速备份和还原功能扩展到 100TB。Single Database provides different compute, memory, and storage resources for different needs that vary from 1 to 80 vCores, 32GB to 4 TB, etc. The hyperscale service tier for single database enables you to scale to 100 TB, with fast backup and restore capabilities.
  • 使用弹性池可以分配池中所有数据库共享的资源。With elastic pools, you can assign resources that will be shared by all databases in the pool. 可以新建数据库,或者将现有单一数据库移到资源池中,以最大限度地使用资源和节省资金,并且还能动态扩展和缩减弹性池资源You can create a new database or move the existing single databases into a resource pool to maximize the use of resources and save money - and the ability to dynamically scale elastic pool resources up and down.
  • 使用托管实例,每个托管实例都与其他实例隔离开来,并包含有保证的资源。With managed instances, each managed instance is isolated from other instances with guaranteed resources. 在托管实例中,实例数据库共用资源集,并且能够纵向和横向动态扩展托管实例资源Within a managed instance, the instance databases share a set of resources - and the ability to dynamically scale managed instance resources up and down.

可以在小型单一数据库中构建第一个应用,每个月只需在“常规用途”服务层级中花费少量资金。然后可以根据解决方案的需要,随时手动或以编程方式将服务层级更改为“业务关键”服务层级。You can build your first app on a small, single database at a low cost per month in the general purpose service tier and then change its service tier manually or programmatically at any time to the business critical Service tier to meet the needs of your solution. 可在不给应用或客户造成停机的情况下调整性能。You can adjust performance without downtime to your app or to your customers. 动态可伸缩性可让数据库以透明方式响应快速变化的资源要求,使用户只需为用到的资源付费。Dynamic scalability enables your database to transparently respond to rapidly changing resource requirements and enables you to only pay for the resources that you need when you need them.

动态可伸缩性不同于自动缩放。Dynamic scalability is different from autoscale. 自动缩放是指服务根据条件自动缩放,而动态可伸缩性允许在无停机时间的情况下进行手动缩放。Autoscale is when a service scales automatically based on criteria, whereas dynamic scalability allows for manual scaling without downtime. 单个数据库支持手动动态可伸缩性,但不支持自动缩放。A Single database supports manual dynamic scalability, but not autoscale. 若要获得更多自动体验,请考虑使用弹性池,它允许数据库根据各个数据库需求共享池中的资源。For a more automatic experience, consider using elastic pools, which allow databases to share resources in a pool based on individual database needs. 但是,有一些脚本可帮助自动执行单个数据库的可伸缩性。However, there are scripts that can help automate scalability for a single database. 有关示例,请参阅使用 PowerShell 监视和缩放单个数据库For an example, see Use PowerShell to monitor and scale a single database.

购买模型Purchasing models

SQL 数据库提供以下两种购买模型:SQL Database offers two purchasing models:

  • 基于 vCore 的购买模型允许选择 vCore 数、内存容量,以及存储的容量和速度。The vCore-based purchasing model lets you choose the number of vCores, the amount of memory, and the amount and speed of storage. 基于 vCore 的购买模型还允许使用 适用于 SQL Server 的 Azure 混合权益 来节省成本。The vCore-based purchasing model also allows you to use Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server to gain cost savings. 有关 Azure 混合权益的详细信息,请参阅常见问题解答For more information about the Azure Hybrid Benefit, see Frequently asked questions.
  • 基于 DTU 的购买模型:混合提供三个服务层级中的计算、内存和 IO 资源,以支持轻型到重型数据库工作负荷。The DTU-based purchasing model offers a blend of compute, memory, IO resources in three service tiers to support lightweight to heavyweight database workloads. 每个层级中的不同计算大小提供这些资源的不同组合,你可以向其添加更多的存储资源。Compute sizes within each tier provide a different mix of these resources, to which you can add additional storage resources.
  • 无服务器模型可根据工作负荷需求自动缩放计算,并按每秒使用的计算量计费。The Serverless model that automatically scales compute based on workload demand and bills for the amount of compute used per second. 此外,当仅对存储计费时,无服务器计算层将在非活动期间自动暂停数据库;当活动返回时,它将自动恢复数据库。The serverless compute tier also automatically pauses databases during inactive periods when only storage is billed and automatically resumes databases when activity returns.

服务层Service tiers

Azure SQL 数据库提供了三个专为不同类型的应用程序设计的服务层级:Azure SQL Database offers three service tiers that are designed for different types of applications:

  • 常规用途/标准服务层级设计用于常见工作负荷。General Purpose/Standard service tier designed for common workloads. 提供以预算导向的、均衡的计算和存储选项。Offers budget oriented balanced compute and storage options.
  • 业务关键型/高级服务层级专为事务率较高、IO 延迟最低的 OLTP 应用程序而设计。Business Critical/Premium service tier designed for OLTP applications with high transaction rate and lowest latency IO. 使用多个独立副本,提供最高级别的故障恢复能力。Offers highest resilience to failures using several, isolated replicas.
  • 超大规模服务层级专为超大型 OLTP 数据库设计,能够自动缩放存储和流畅地缩放计算。HyperScale service tier designed for very large OLTP database and the ability to auto-scale storage and scale compute fluidly.

弹性池可以最大化资源利用率Elastic pools to maximize resource utilization

许多业务和应用程序只要能够创建单一数据库并按需调高或调低性能即可,尤其是当使用模式相对容易预测时。For many businesses and applications, being able to create single databases and dial performance up or down on demand is enough, especially if usage patterns are relatively predictable. 但如果有无法预测的使用模式,则管理成本和业务模式就会变得相当困难。But if you have unpredictable usage patterns, it can make it hard to manage costs and your business model. 弹性池旨在解决此问题。Elastic pools are designed to solve this problem. 概念很简单。The concept is simple. 可以向池而不是单个数据库分配性能资源,并且仅需为池的总体性能资源付费,而无需为单一数据库的性能付费。You allocate performance resources to a pool rather than an individual database and pay for the collective performance resources of the pool rather than for single database performance.


使用弹性池时,不需要在资源需求波动时担心如何上下调节数据库性能。With elastic pools, you don't need to focus on dialing database performance up and down as demand for resources fluctuates. 入池数据库可根据需要使用弹性池的性能资源。The pooled databases consume the performance resources of the elastic pool as needed. 入池数据库会使用该池,但不会超出其限制,因此即使单个数据库的使用情况仍不可预测,成本也仍是可预测的。Pooled databases consume but don't exceed the limits of the pool, so your cost remains predictable even if individual database usage doesn't. 此外,可以向池添加和删除数据库,将应用从少量数据库扩展到数千个,而一切费用不会超出所控制的预算范围。What's more, you can add and remove databases to the pool, scaling your app from a handful of databases to thousands, all within a budget that you control. 还可以控制池中数据库可用的资源量上限与下限,确保池中不会有任何数据库使用所有的池资源,每个入池数据库的可用资源量都有最低保障。You can also control the minimum and maximum resources available to databases in the pool to ensure that no database in the pool uses all the pool resources and that every pooled database has a guaranteed minimum amount of resources.

脚本可以帮助监视和缩放弹性池。Scripts can help with monitoring and scaling elastic pools. 有关示例,请参阅使用 PowerShell 在 Azure SQL 数据库中监视和缩放 SQL 弹性池For an example, see Use PowerShell to monitor and scale a SQL elastic pool in Azure SQL Database


托管实例不支持弹性池。A managed instance does not support elastic pools. 相反,托管实例是共用托管实例资源的实例数据库的集合。Rather, a managed instance is a collection of instance databases that share managed instance resources.

将单一数据库与入池数据库混合使用Blend single databases with pooled databases

可将单一数据库与弹性池混合使用,快速轻松地更改单一数据库和弹性池的服务层级来适应自己的情况。You can blend single databases with elastic pools and change the service tiers of single databases and elastic pools quickly and easily to adapt to your situation. 凭借 Azure 的功能和作用范围,可将其他 Azure 服务与 SQL 数据库搭配使用以满足独特的应用设计需求,提高成本和资源效益,发掘新的商机。With the power and reach of Azure, you can mix-and-match other Azure services with SQL Database to meet your unique app design needs, drive cost and resource efficiencies, and unlock new business opportunities.

集中监视和警报功能Extensive monitoring and alerting capabilities

Azure SQL 数据库提供一组高级监视和故障排除功能,可帮助你深入了解工作负荷的特征。Azure SQL Database provides a set of advanced monitoring and troubleshooting features that can help you to get the full insights into the workload characteristics. 这些功能和工具可划分为:The features and tools might be categorized as:

  • 最新版本的 SQL Server 数据库引擎提供的内置监视功能,可让你找到实时性能见解。The built-in monitoring capabilities provided by the latest version of SQL Server Database Engine that enable you to find real-time performance insights.
  • Azure 平台提供的 PaaS 监视功能,可让你轻松监视大量的数据库实例,并提供故障排除建议来帮助你解决性能问题。PaaS monitoring capabilities provided by Azure platform that enable you to easily monitor a large number of database instances and also provide the troubleshooting advices that can help you to fix performance issues.

应利用的最重要内置数据库引擎监视功能是查询存储组件,它可以实时记录查询性能,并使你能够识别潜在的性能问题和排名靠前的资源使用者。The most important built-in database engine monitoring feature that you should leverage is Query Store component that records the performance of your queries in real-time and enables you to identify the potential performance issues and the top resource consumers. 自动优化和建议提供有关性能退化以及存在缺失或重复索引的查询的建议。Automatic tuning and recommendations provide advices regarding the queries with the regressed performance and missing or duplicated indexes. 使用 Azure SQL 数据库中的自动优化,可以手动应用脚本来解决问题,或者让 Azure SQL 数据库应用修复措施,测试并验证该修复措施是否起了作用,并根据结果保留或还原更改。Automatic tuning in Azure SQL Database enables you to either manually apply the scripts that can fix the issues or let Azure SQL Database to apply the fix, test and verify does it provide some benefit, and retain or revert the change depending on the outcome. 除了查询存储和自动优化功能外,还可以使用标准的 DMV 和 XEvent 来监视工作负荷性能。In addition to Query Store and Automatic tuning capabilities, you can also use standard DMVs and XEvent to monitor the workload performance.

Azure 平台提供内置的性能监视警报工具,将它们与性能评分相结合,可以轻松监视数千个数据库的状态。Azure platform provides the built-in performance monitoring and alerting tools, combined with the performance ratings, that enable you to easily monitor status of thousands of databases. 使用这些工具,可以根据当前的或预计的性能需求,快速评估纵向扩展或纵向缩减产生的影响。Using these tools, you can quickly assess the impact of scaling up or down based on your current or projected performance needs. 此外,SQL 数据库可发出指标和诊断日志,以便更轻松地监视。Additionally, SQL Database can emit metrics and diagnostic logs for easier monitoring. 可配置 SQL 数据库,将资源使用情况、辅助角色和会话以及连接性存储到以下 Azure 资源之一:You can configure SQL Database to store resource usage, workers and sessions, and connectivity into one of these Azure resources:

  • Azure 存储:用于低价存档大量遥测数据。Azure Storage: For archiving vast amounts of telemetry for a small price.

  • Azure 事件中心:用于将 SQL 数据库遥测与自定义监视解决方案或热门管道集成。Azure Event Hub: For integrating SQL Database telemetry with your custom monitoring solution or hot pipelines.

  • Azure Monitor 日志:用于具有报告、警报和缓解功能的内置监视解决方案。Azure Monitor logs: For built-in monitoring solution with reporting, alerting, and mitigating capabilities.


可用性功能Availability capabilities

在传统的 SQL Server 环境中,通常需要在本地设置(至少)2 台计算机(使用 AlwaysOn 可用性组或故障转移群集实例等功能进行设置),其中包含确切数目的数据副本(以同步方式维护,以便在单个计算机/组件出现故障时提供保护。In a traditional SQL Server environment, you would generally have (at least) 2 machines locally set up with exact (synchronously maintained) copies of the data (using features like AlwaysOn availability groups or Failover Cluster Instances) to protect against a failure of a single machine/component. 这样可以提供高可用性,但在发生损毁数据中心的自然灾难时无法提供保护。This provides high availability but does not protect against a natural disaster destroying your data center.

灾难恢复假设灾难性事件在局部地区发生,而远地部署了另一个包含数据副本的计算机/计算机组。Disaster recovery assumes that a catastrophic event will be geographically localized enough to have another machine/set of machines with a copy of your data far away. 在 SQL Server 中,可以使用以异步模式运行的 Always On 可用性组来获取此功能。In SQL Server, you could use Always On Availability Groups running in async mode to get this capability. 光速问题通常意味着,人们不想等到远端复制完成后再提交事务,因此,在执行计划外故障转移时可能会丢失数据。The speed of light issue usually means that people do not want to wait for replication to happen that far away before committing a transaction, so there is potential for data loss when you do unplanned failovers.

高级和业务关键服务层级中的数据库的某些功能已经与可用性组的同步功能非常类似Databases in the premium and business critical service tiers already do something very similar to the synchronization of an availability group. 较低服务层级中的数据库使用不同但等效的机制通过存储提供冗余。Databases in lower service tiers provide redundancy through storage using a different but equivalent mechanism. 有相应的逻辑可以防范单个计算机发生故障。There is logic that protects against a single machine failure. 使用活动异地复制功能可以在灾难损毁整个区域时提供保护。The active geo-replication feature gives you the ability to protect against disaster where a whole region is destroyed.

事实上,Azure 行业领先的 99.99% 可用性服务级别协议 (SLA)(由 Azure 管理的数据中心的全局网络提供支持)有助于保持应用全天候运行。In fact, Azure's industry leading 99.99% availability service level agreement (SLA), powered by a global network of Azure-managed datacenters, helps keep your app running 24/7. Azure 平台完全管理每个数据库,并保证不会丢失数据并实现高百分比数据可用性。The Azure platform fully manages every database and guarantees no data loss and high percentage of data availability. Azure 会自动处理修补、备份、复制、故障检测;基础的潜在硬件、软件或网络故障;部署 bug 修复、故障转移、数据库升级和其他维护任务。Azure automatically handles patching, backups, replication, failure detection, underlying potential hardware, software or network failures, deploying bug fixes, failovers, database upgrades and other maintenance tasks. 标准可用性是通过将计算层与存储层相隔离来实现的。Standard availability is achieved by a separation of compute and storage layers. 高级可用性的实现方式是将计算和存储层集成到单个节点以提高性能,然后藉此实施类似于 Always On 可用性组的技术。Premium availability is achieved by integrating compute and storage on a single node for performance and then implementing technology similar to Always On Availability Groups under the covers. 有关 Azure SQL 数据库的高可用性功能的完整讨论,请参阅 SQL 数据库可用性For a full discussion of the high availability capabilities of Azure SQL Database, see SQL Database availability. 此外,SQL 数据库还提供内置业务连续性和全局可伸缩性功能,包括:In addition, SQL Database provides built-in business continuity and global scalability features, including:

  • 自动备份Automatic backups:

    SQL 数据库自动执行 Azure SQL 数据库的完整备份、差异备份和事务日志备份,以便能够还原到任何时间点。SQL Database automatically performs full, differential, and transaction log backups of Azure SQL databases to enable you to restore to any point in time. 对于单一数据库和入池数据库,可以将 SQL 数据库配置为,将完整数据库备份存储到 Azure 存储,以供长期备份保留。For single databases and pooled databases, you can configure SQL Database to store full database backups to Azure storage for long-term backup retention. 对于托管实例,还可以执行仅复制备份,以供长期备份保留。For managed instances, you can also perform copy-only backups for long-term backup retention.

  • 时间点还原Point-in-time restores:

    所有 SQL 数据库部署选项都支持恢复到任何 Azure SQL 数据库的自动备份保留期内的任何时间点。All SQL Database deployment options support recovery to any point in time within the automatic backup retention period for any Azure SQL database.

  • 活动异地复制Active geo-replication:

    使用单一数据库和入池数据库,可以在同一或全局分布式 Azure 数据中心内配置至多 4 个可读辅助数据库。Single database and pooled databases allow you to configure up to four readable secondary databases in either the same or globally distributed Azure data centers. 例如,如果有一个 SaaS 应用程序,其中的目录数据库包含大量并发只读事务,请使用活动异地复制来启用全局读取缩放并删除主数据库上因读取工作负荷产生的瓶颈。For example, if you have a SaaS application with a catalog database that has a high volume of concurrent read-only transactions, use active geo-replication to enable global read scale and remove bottlenecks on the primary that are due to read workloads. 对于托管实例,请使用自动故障转移组。For managed instances, use auto-failover groups.

  • 自动故障转移组Auto-failover groups:

    通过所有 SQL 数据库部署选项,可使用故障转移组实现全局范围内的高可用性和负载均衡,包括大量数据库、弹性池和托管实例的透明异地复制和故障转移。All SQL Database deployment options allow you to use failover groups to enable high availability and load balancing at global scale, including transparent geo-replication and failover of large sets of databases, elastic pools, and managed instances. 通过故障转移组,可以最小管理开销创建全局分布式 SaaS 应用程序,将所有复杂监视、路由和故障转移业务流程都留给 SQL 数据库。Failover groups enable the creation of globally distributed SaaS applications with minimal administration overhead leaving all the complex monitoring, routing, and failover orchestration to SQL Database.

内置智能Built-in intelligence

使用 SQL 数据库,可获得内置智能,帮助大幅降低运行和管理数据库的成本,并将应用程序的性能和安全性最大化。With SQL Database, you get built-in intelligence that helps you dramatically reduce the costs of running and managing databases and maximizes both performance and security of your application. 通过全天候运行数以百万计的客户工作负荷,SQL 数据库收集和处理大量遥测数据,同时完全尊重幕后客户的隐私。Running millions of customer workloads around-the-clock, SQL Database collects and processes a massive amount of telemetry data, while also fully respecting customer privacy behind the scenes. 各种算法正在不间断计算遥测数据,以便服务可以了解并适应应用程序。Various algorithms are continuously evaluating the telemetry data so that the service can learn and adapt with your application. 基于这一分析,该服务会提出针对特定工作负荷的性能改进建议。Based on this analysis, the service comes up with performance improvement recommendations tailored to your specific workload.

自动性能监视和优化Automatic performance monitoring and tuning

SQL 数据库提供针对需要监视的查询的详细见解。SQL Database provides detailed insight into the queries that you need to monitor. SQL 数据库会学习用户的数据库模式,使用户能够根据工作负荷调整数据库架构。SQL Database's learns about your database patterns and enables you to adapt your database schema to your workload. SQL 数据库提供性能优化建议,可在其中查看并应用优化操作。SQL Database provides performance tuning recommendations, where you can review tuning actions and apply them.

然而,持续监视数据库是一项艰巨且乏味的任务,尤其是在处理多个数据库时。However, constantly monitoring a database is a hard and tedious task, especially when dealing with many databases. Intelligent Insights 通过大规模地自动监视 SQL 数据库性能并就性能下降问题发出通知来为你完成此作业,它确定问题的根本原因并在可能的情况下提供性能改进建议。Intelligent Insights does this job for you by automatically monitoring SQL Database performance at scale and it informs you of performance degradation issues, it identifies the root cause of the issue and provides performance improvement recommendations when possible.

可能无法高效管理大量数据库,即使使用 SQL 数据库和 Azure 门户提供的所有可用工具和报表也一样。Managing a huge number of databases might be impossible to do efficiently even with all available tools and reports that SQL Database and Azure portal provide. 可考虑使用自动优化将某些监视和优化操作委派给 SQL 数据库,而不是手动监视和优化数据库。Instead of monitoring and tuning your database manually, you might consider delegating some of the monitoring and tuning actions to SQL Database using automatic tuning. SQL 数据库自动应用建议、测试,并验证每个优化操作,确保性能持续提升。SQL Database automatically applies recommendations, tests, and verifies each of its tuning actions to ensure the performance keeps improving. 这样一来,SQL 数据库将以受控且安全的方式自动适应工作负荷。This way, SQL Database automatically adapts to your workload in a controlled and safe way. 自动优化是指在每次优化操作前后仔细监视和比较数据库性能,如果性能未得到提升,则还原优化操作。Automatic tuning means that the performance of your database is carefully monitored and compared before and after every tuning action, and if the performance doesn't improve, the tuning action is reverted.

SQL 数据库可从两个方面进行自动优化There are two automatic tuning aspects that are available in SQL Database:

  • 自动索引管理:标识应在数据库中添加的索引以及应删除的索引。Automatic index management: Identifies indexes that should be added in your database, and indexes that should be removed.
  • 自动计划更正:标识有问题的计划并修复 SQL 计划性能问题(即将推出,已在 SQL Server 2017 中提供)。Automatic plan correction: Identifies problematic plans and fixes SQL plan performance problems (coming soon, already available in SQL Server 2017).

自适应查询处理Adaptive query processing

我们还将向 SQL 数据库添加自适应查询处理系列功能,包括交错执行多语句表值函数,批处理模式内存授予反馈和批处理模式自适应联接。We are also adding the adaptive query processing family of features to SQL Database, including interleaved execution for multi-statement table-valued functions, batch mode memory grant feedback, and batch mode adaptive joins. 每个自适应查询处理功能均应用类似的“学习和适应”技巧,帮助进一步解决与历史上棘手的查询优化问题相关的性能问题。Each of these adaptive query processing features applies similar �learn and adapt� techniques, helping further address performance issues related to historically intractable query optimization problems.

高级安全性和符合性Advanced security and compliance

SQL 数据库提供一系列内置安全性和符合性功能,帮助应用程序满足各种安全性和符合性要求。SQL Database provides a range of built-in security and compliance features to help your application meet various security and compliance requirements.

符合性和安全性审核Auditing for compliance and security

审核可跟踪数据库事件,并将事件写入 Azure 存储帐户中的审核日志。Auditing tracks database events and writes them to an audit log in your Azure storage account. 审核可帮助你一直保持遵从法规、了解数据库活动,以及深入了解可以指明业务考量因素或疑似安全违规的偏差和异常。Auditing can help you maintain regulatory compliance, understand database activity, and gain insight into discrepancies and anomalies that could indicate business concerns or suspected security violations.

数据加密Data encryption

SQL 数据库可以保护数据。对于动态数据,它使用传输层安全性提供加密;对于静态数据,它使用透明数据加密提供加密;对于使用中的数据,它使用 Always Encrypted 提供加密。SQL Database secures your data by providing encryption for data in motion with transport layer security, for data at rest with transparent data encryption, and for data in use with always encrypted.

Azure Active Directory 集成和多重身份验证Azure Active Directory integration and multi-factor authentication

通过 SQL 数据库,可使用 Azure Active Directory 集成集中管理数据库用户和其他 Microsoft 服务的身份。SQL Database enables you to centrally manage identities of database user and other Microsoft services with Azure Active Directory integration. 此功能简化了权限管理,增强了安全性。This capability simplifies permission management and enhances security. Azure Active Directory 支持多重身份验证 (MFA),以便在支持单一登录过程的同时提高数据和应用程序安全性。Azure Active Directory supports multi-factor authentication (MFA) to increase data and application security while supporting a single sign-in process.

符合性认证Compliance certification

Azure 混合权益问题Azure Hybrid Benefit questions

面向 SQL Server 的 Azure 混合权益是否具有双倍使用权利Are there dual-use rights with Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server

我们为客户提供 180 天的许可证双倍使用权利,以确保无缝运行迁移。You have 180 days of dual use rights of the license to ensure migrations are running seamlessly. 在 180 天期限过后,SQL Server 许可证只能在云中的 SQL 数据库内使用,并且在本地和云中都没有双倍使用权利。After that 180-day period, the SQL Server license can only be used in the cloud in SQL Database, and does not have dual use rights on-premises and in the cloud.

面向 SQL Server 的 Azure 混合权益与许可证移动性有何区别How does Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server differ from license mobility

目前,我们为 SQL Server 客户提供软件保障许可证移动性权益,以便将其许可证重新分配到第三方共享服务器。Today, we offer license mobility benefits to SQL Server customers with Software Assurance that allows re-assignment of their licenses to third-party shared servers. 可对 Azure IaaS 和 AWS EC2 使用此权益。This benefit can be used on Azure IaaS and AWS EC2. 与许可证移动性相比,面向 SQL Server 的 Azure 混合权益的区别主要体现在两个方面:Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server differs from license mobility in two key areas:

  • 提供经济权益,以便将高度虚拟化的工作负荷转移到 Azure。It provides economic benefits for moving highly virtualized workloads to Azure. 对于高度虚拟化的应用程序,如果 SQL EE 客户在本地拥有一个核心,则他们可以在 Azure 的常规用途 SKU 中获得 4 个核心。SQL EE customers can get 4 cores in Azure in the General Purpose SKU for every core they own on-premises for highly virtualized applications. 许可证移动性不允许使用任何特殊成本权益将虚拟化工作负荷转移到云中。License mobility does not allow any special cost benefits for moving virtualized workloads to the cloud.
  • 它适用于 Azure(SQL 数据库托管实例)上与本地 SQL Server 高度兼容的 PaaS 目标It provides for a PaaS destination on Azure (SQL Database Managed Instance) that is highly compatible with SQL Server on-premises
