I'm about to begin on setting up Mirroring for a rather large customer, who wishes to use Azure to host the service and database. I have found a few forum posts touching the subject, but not something that specifically answers the questions that came up during a recent meeting i had with the customer, so here i am asking. :)
So, i can read that there should not be any problems in deploying a mirror database in azure, but the customer asks whether i would advise them to use a normal Azure SQL Database og a Azure SQL MI (Managed Instance) Database. In my view, a standalone database would be preferred, as they are going to have a production environment, as well as two test environments mirrored - and the production environment will most likely require much more computing power than both of the test environments, as the production environment will be queried more often. But in terms of functionality or maybe lack thereof compared to on-premises, i don't think it seems to be missing anything. But what do you say, do you have any experience with deploying mirroring in Azure?
Thanks in advance :)
