Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instance brings the benefits of a managed cloud database service to any environment outside of Azure. An Azure Arc-enabled SQL Managed Instance, or “Arc-enabled SQL MI” for short, is an Instance, or SQL engine. Being Azure based and cloud native, the Arc-enabled SQL MI is defined as “Evergreen SQL” or always current. Gone are the days of large SQL migrations to the next version because you will always be on the latest version with an Arc-enabled SQL MI. You will also benefit from no longer managing EOS for your databases.
