One great advantage of the cloud is the ability to utilize Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings to offload server and database administration, freeing you to focus on what drives success for your business. This includes your favorite open-source databases such as MySQL. In this hands-on lab scenario you are the DBA for Awesome Company. You have been tasked with delivering an open-source database backend for a new cloud-native app. This solution should integrate closely with Azure services, allow seamless transition of developer code that has been written against MySQL, and require as little hands-on maintenance as possible. This lab will help you become familiar with how to provision an Azure Database for MySQL server.
