Hello All,

I have deployed the SQL Database in to SQL Azure database :

But I don't know, What will be the server-date and time:

how do we know the date offset / DateZone of SQL Azure server ? I created the SQL server with southeast region:

Is there any way to configure the Customized data zone..

Thanks
Saravanan.s



Many Thanks!

Your safest bet there is to use the UTC dates. If you do anything else, you're likely to run into a problem. While they will have a bias towards keeping your data in the southeast, there's no guarantee. So you can cover it by always setting your dates to a specific value, UTC is best.
