Znalytics Upgrades to Azure SQL Platform

Znalytics Upgrades to Azure SQL Platform

Znalytics announced today that they have completed their upgrade to Microsoft’s Azure SQL for EOS, their flagship product for retail energy billing and customer management. Azure SQL is the most advanced and secure version Microsoft's database service currently available. 

One of the key benefits Znalytics identifies regarding the upgrade to Azure SQL is the improved scalability and disaster recovery benefits to Znalytics' clients.  Auto-scaling will allow Azure SQL to dynamically scale-up or down based on load. This will allow Znalytics' clients to maintain the same high performance levels in EOS seemlessly, even when they experience large swings in account volume based on new acquisitions or divestitures of accounts. In addition, the geo-redundancy measures built into Azure SQL mean that in the event of a business interruption event the system could be restored completely, without data loss, in only a few hours.
