Database requirements/limitations

ArcGIS connections to Microsoft Azure must originate from machines within Microsoft Azure, and connections should originate from machines within the same Azure region.

See the following Microsoft Azure documentation for more information on these database offerings:

Software required to connect to a DBMS

When you create a deployment using ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure, a supported version of the Microsoft SQL Server ODBC driver is installed on ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Pro machines to allow you to connect to Microsoft Azure SQL Database. As Azure upgrades Microsoft Azure SQL Database, you'll need to upgrade the ODBC driver to continue to connect. In addition, upgrading ArcGIS components may also require you to upgrade your ODBC driver. See ArcGIS requirements for Microsoft SQL Server for information on supported ODBC driver versions.
