Offer MySQL as a service natively completed
Currently, MySQL service is provided by ClearDB which means that Azure credits can't be used against it, the database is not visible in the current management portal (only in the preview one) etc. MySQL is a popular database and I think it would make perfect sense to support it natively, as a "proper" Azure service.Borek Bernard
