The feature provides never-before possible hybrid connectivity and near real-time database replication between SQL Servers 2016-2022 and Managed Instance, including industry’s first bidirectional data movement and online failover (Disaster Recovery) between SQL Server 2022 and SQL Managed Instance. You don’t even need to migrate to the cloud to use it – remain running on your existing SQL Server and use the modern Azure services by offloading R/O workloads and analytics to the cloud. When ready to migrate, use it as the best possible minimum downtime migration option in Azure. Need to move back from Azure to SQL Server on-premises, or anywhere else? No problem, use it all in reverse and replicate your online and near real-time from Managed Instance back to SQL Server 2022.
