Update to Azure SQL Database serverless provides even greater price optimization
Updated: July 09, 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 optimization opportunities for serverless databases. For more information, please see Azure SQL Database serverless.
