Overview


 

Azure SQL Edge

Small-footprint, edge-optimized SQL database engine with built-in AI

 

Simplify edge architecture and application development

Bring the security and performance of the Microsoft SQL engine to the edge with Azure SQL Edge running on ARM64 and x64 architecture. This productivity tool for edge computing combines new capabilities such as data streaming and time series with in-database machine learning and graph features. Develop your application once and deploy anywhere across the edge, your datacentre, and Azure.

 

Small-footprint container running in ARM- and x64-based devices in a connected, disconnected, or hybrid environment

Built-in data streaming and time series, with in-database machine learning and graph features for low-latency analytics

Data processing at the edge to optimize bandwidth, reaction time, and cost

Deployment and updates from Azure or your enterprise portal for consistent security and turnkey management

 

Use your platform of choice

Stream, store and analyse time-series data

Conduct real-time scoring at the edge with built-in AI

Expand device architecture coverage to include ARM-based and x64-based architecture. Choose either Windows or Linux as your host and use Kubernetes to orchestrate your device infrastructure for better efficiency and automation. Run Azure SQL Edge connected, semi-connected or offline to support various edge environments.

Manage data at the edge with data streaming, time series data analysis, and machine learning-based data inferencing. Analyse data while it’s being streamed using time-windowing, aggregation, and filtering capabilities, and achieve deeper insights by combining different data types such as time series and graphs.

Detect anomalies and apply business logic at the edge using the built-in machine learning-based data inferencing capabilities. Train machine learning models in the cloud or on-premises using the language or toolkit of your choice and convert them using the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) framework to perform real-time data inferencing at the edge.

 

 

 

Get unparalleled performance and security at the edge

Enjoy turnkey management

Simplify your edge architecture

Built on the same code base as SQL Server and SQL Database, Azure SQL Edge uses the same high-performing and secure engine to meet the demands of edge computing.

Install and manage Azure SQL Edge on all your edge devices with minimal overhead. Create and deploy the container from a single management portal and update the container and data schema based on your security-management and business needs.

Use a single container for your local streaming, storage, and machine learning. Because the surface area is the same as Azure SQL Database and SQL Server running on-premises, SQL Edge extends a consistent application development and management experience to the edge.
