CHECKDB on Azure SQL DB?
This is a selfish post because I’ll probably forget and go googling for info on this topic, so I though I would link to an authoritative answer on the question, do you need to run DBCC CHECKDB on Azure SQL DB?
Microsoft distinguished engineer Peter Carlin says you don’t need to, it is monitored by Azure on your behalf. And if something was to go wrong, they will also work with you to put things right.
Although Peter says you can run them if you want, his post gives me enough peace of mind to stop running these on my Azure SQL DB instances. Let me know if you agree in the comments.
