Configure Azure SQL with Failover Groups

Azure SQL includes several features which help protect against outages. Auto-failover groups provide this protection with a range of built-in management capabilities to simplify failover. In this hands-on lab, we'll use the Azure portal to configure an auto-failover group for an existing Azure SQL server. **Scenario** You've recently been employed as a cloud administrator, and you have been asked to address some concerns that were raised during a business continuity audit. Following the audit, you have been asked to implement the following improvements for your Azure SQL service: * Configure replication to improve high availability * Ensure that you can recover promptly in the event of a region-wide disaster * Ensure that failover is automated and includes DNS management
