Preview: A flexible new way to purchase Azure SQL Database

Recently announced with SQL Database Managed Instance, the vCore-based purchasing model reflects our commitment to customer choice by providing flexibility, control, and transparency. As with Managed Instance, the vCore-based model makes the Elastic Pool and Single Database options eligible for up to 30 percent savings with the Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server.
