With our last post and the availability of readable secondaries on all tiers I thought I’d run through the requirements.
Firstly we need to create three servers. In this example we’ll create one each in North Europe, West Europe and West US, as below;
Then we will add a database to our Primary server, North Europe.
Then under the database we can add a Geo-Replication role;
Once this is clicked Azure will start to deploy your database;
When deployment is complete the secondary is ready for more configuration. The deployment completion time is dependent on where and what size your database is – you will see the database shown as seeding and a percentage.
