Introduction

SQL Azure database is a managed cloud database (SaaS) provided as part of Microsoft Azure. Azure SQL database is the intelligent, fully managed relational cloud database service that provides the broadest SQL Server engine compatibility, so that you can migrate your SQL Server databases without changing your apps.

Any performance degradation or unavailability of the database servers can severely impact the performance of the entire service, often causing customer dissatisfaction and lost business revenue. Continuous monitoring of the SQL Azure database servers are hence imperative. This is where the eG Enterprise helps database administrators!
