Azure database performance

Data servers resting on clouds in blue in a cloudy sky

dbWatch works seamlessly with databases located in Microsoft's Azure and other cloud services. One of the advantages of using an Azure database is that you can put it in different geographical locations to minimize network lag.


You can use dbWatch to measure the performance of cloud databases such as Azure. Our own tests revealed surprising variations after analyzing the performance of Azure databases across different geographical regions – and over time – and by comparing them to an SQL Server.

The tests were carried out with the latest release of dbWatch. To try it for yourself,  you can download the tests and dbWatch here.
