Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2012 fixes in one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security updates that were included with the previous SQL Server 2012 update release.
When a SQL Server 2012 database contains a large transaction log file, you cannot restore the database in the Microsoft Azure binary large objects (BLOB) storage service. For example, if the transaction log file is so large that it takes longer than 3 minutes to restore it, you cannot restore the database.
