Restoring Point-In-Time To Another Azure SQL Managed Instance

Jovan Popovic announces an improvement to Azure SQL Database Managed Instances:

Azure SQL Database Managed Instance enables you to create a database as a copy of another database at some point in time in the past. This is known as point-in-time restore feature, and up till now you could perform point-in-time restore only within the same instance.

The latest release of Azure SQL Database Managed Instance enables you to perform point-in-time restore of a database from one instance to another. This might be useful if you need to be sure that you could easily restore a database to another instance if there is some issue on the original instance, or if you need a database for testing or auditing purposes on the test instance and you want to use copy of some of the existing database on another server.
