Windows Azure SQL Database Automated Backup Frequency is in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)

July 17, 2013 — 2 Comments

The Windows Azure team has recently released Windows Azure SQL Database Automated Backups. Up until yesterday, I was not sure if the FREQUENCY was in Local Time or in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). I had a hunch that like the Windows Azure SQL Databases, the FREQUENCY could in fact be in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

Today I was informed that it’s not adjusted to the browser’s local time and that we need to set the FREQUENCY using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

You can view the current UTC time from http://time.is/UTC
