Microsoft SQL Database as a Service

Fully Managed Microsoft SQL in the Cloud

Liquid Web customers with critical sites and applications requiring a robust, scalable, and highly available database can add Microsoft SQL Database as a Service to their hosting solution. Hosting your database on a separate server can significantly reduce overhead on your primary Liquid Web server while improving overall performance and adding a new level of scalability – all without having to worry about managing the database server or services yourself.

A Highly Available, Scalable, and Fully Managed Database Solution

High Availability

Microsoft SQL Database as a Service is designed for maximum reliability. The use of multiple hardware nodes (read/write, read-only, and passive) ensures that your database will be available and accessible in almost any situation.

Easily Scalable

Separating your database from your primary server allows you to take full advantage of the power of the cloud. You can easily scale your database up or down across any service tier with a single call, raising and lowering your capacity at any time as needed.

Fully Managed

Our High Availability Cloud SQL service is fully managed – you don’t need to worry about the Operating System, High Availability setup, or the hardware. Liquid Web’s highly qualified System Administrators will manage every aspect of the service.

Backups Included

Microsoft SQL Database as a Service includes one full day of backups. Liquid Web provides one complete daily backup of your database as well as a full 24 hours of hourly log backups.

Maximum Performance

High Availability and High Performance rarely go hand in hand. But our solution allows you to effectively double your read performance by initiating read-intent requests when appropriate.

Platform-independent

Your database connection doesn’t depend on your Operating System, so you can leverage the power of Microsoft SQL even if your Liquid Web server is not running Windows.
