Published date: June 10, 2020

The maximum vCore limit for Azure SQL Database serverless has increased more than twofold from 16 vCores to 40 vCores. The higher limits provide greater compute auto-scaling headroom for serverless databases with more demanding workloads.

Azure SQL Database serverless optimizes price performance and simplifies performance management for databases with intermittent, unpredictable usage patterns. Serverless automatically scales compute for single databases based on workload demand and bills for the amount of compute used per second.
