Update to Azure SQL Database serverless provides even greater price optimisation

Posted on 09 July 2019

Azure SQL Database serverless automatically scales compute for single databases based on workload demand and bills for compute used per second.  Serverless also provides an option to automatically pause the database during inactive usage periods when only storage costs are billed. We are pleased to announce the minimum configurable auto-pause delay has decreased to 1 hour providing even greater price optimisation opportunities for serverless databases.  For more information, please see Azure SQL Database serverless.
