Azure SQL Database features
Azure SQL Database shares a common code base with SQL Server and, at the database level, supports most of the same features. The major feature differences between Azure SQL Database and SQL Server are at the instance level.
We continue to add features to Azure SQL Database. So we encourage you to visit our Service Updates webpage for Azure, and to use its filters:
- Filtered to the SQL Database service.
- Filtered to General Availability (GA) announcements for SQL Database features.
