1RMB Trial Buy Now

Azure SQL Database is a fully managed relational database with built-in intelligence supporting self-driving features such as performance tuning and threat alerts. Microsoft performs all the patching and updating of the code base, and manages the underlying infrastructure for you, so you can save time and resources. With high SQL Server compatibility, you can also migrate your databases to SQL Database Managed Instance without changing your apps.

Pricing Details

SQL Database Elastic Pool is a shared resource model that enables higher resource utilization efficiency, with all the databases within an elastic pool sharing predefined resources within the same pool. The workload pattern is well defined and is highly cost-effective in multitenant scenarios. Elastic pool is best for new SaaS apps, or for modernizing existing apps to SaaS.

A vCore-based purchase model is best if you are looking for flexibility, control and transparency of individual resource consumption. This model allows you to scale compute, memory, and storage based upon your workload needs and provides a straightforward way to translate on-premises workload requirements to the cloud.

General Purpose

Ideal for most business workloads, offering balanced and scalable compute and storage options.

Elastic pools

Elastic pools let you manage the collective performance of a pool of databases rather than single databases. The databases in the pool automatically scale up and down to meet demand. You can easily add and remove databases from the pool, scaling your app from a handful of databases to thousands, all within a budget you control.

Elastic pools are available in basic, standard, and premium service tiers. Each tier is distinguished primarily by its overall performance, which is measured in elastic Database Transaction Units (eDTUs). See Service tiers for elastic database pools for details.

FAQ

Expand all
  • What is a vCore?

    A virtual core (vCore) represents the logical CPU available for your server, offered with a choice between generations of hardware. For servers created using Gen4 vCores, the vCores are based on Intel E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) 2.4 GHz processors. For servers created using Gen5 vCores, the vCores are based on Intel E5-2673 v4 (Broadwell) 2.3 GHz processors.

  • What does the vCore-based model provide?

    The vCore-based purchasing model gives you more flexibility and control and a straightforward way to translate your on-premises workload requirements to the cloud. It also allows you to scale compute and storage resources independently, based upon your workload needs.

    The vCore-based model is available to SQL Database managed instance, Single Database and Elastic Pool deployment options and enables the use of Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server for each of these options. Pricing within the vCore-based model is therefore available with and without the hybrid benefit:

    • License included: Excludes Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server. This option is for customers who choose not to apply their existing SQL Server licenses with Software Assurance to vCore-based SQL Database deployment options.
    • Base rate: Reduced price that includes Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server. Customers can opt into this price by using their SQL Server licenses with Software Assurance.
  • Is moving to the vCore-based model required?

    Moving to the vCore-based model is not required. The introduction of the vCore-based model to the Elastic Pool and Single Database deployment options reflects our commitment to customer choice and flexibility. If you want to continue using the DTU-based model, you do not need to take any action and your experience and billing will remain unchanged. The DTU-based model will remain a viable option for purchasing SQL Database resources, alongside the vCore-based model.

  • What will happen to the DTU-based model?

    The DTU and vCore-based models will continue to exist side by side. We are launching the vCore-based model in response to customer requests for more transparency around their database resources and the ability to scale compute and storage separately.

  • How should I choose between the DTU vs vCore-based models?

    The Database Transaction Unit (DTU) is based on a blended measure of CPU, memory, reads, and writes. The DTU-based performance levels represent preconfigured bundles of resources to drive different levels of application performance. If you do not want to worry about the underlying resources and prefer the simplicity of a preconfigured bundle while paying a fixed amount each month, you may find the DTU-based model more suitable for your needs.

  • Do I need to take my application offline to convert from a DTU-based database to a new vCore-based service tier?

    The new service tiers offer a simple online conversion method that is similar to the existing process of upgrading databases from Standard to Premium service tier and vice versa. This conversion can be initiated using Portal, ARM, PowerShell, Azure CLI or T-SQL.

  • How does usage show up in my bill?

    In the vCore-based model, the service is billed on a predictable, hourly rate based on the service tier, provisioned compute in vCores, provisioned storage in GB/month and consumed backup storage. If the backup exceeds the total database size (i.e., 100% of the database size) there will be additional charges. vCore hours, configured database storage, consumed IO and backup storage are clearly itemized in the bill, making it easier to see the details of resources you have used. Backup storage up to 100% of the maximum database size is included, beyond which you will be billed in GB/month consumed in a month.

    For example:

    • If the SQL database exists for 12 hours in a month, the bill will show usage for 12 hours of vCore. If the SQL database provisioned an additional 100 GB, the bill will show storage usage in units of GB/Month prorated hourly and number of IOs consumed in a month.

    If the SQL database is active for less than one hour, you are billed for each hour the database exists using the highest service tier selected, provisioned storage and IO that applied during that hour, regardless of usage or whether the database was active for less than an hour.

    For example:

    • If you create a Managed Instance and delete it five minutes later, you’ll be charged for one database hour.
    • If you create a Managed Instance in the General Purpose tier with 8 vCores, and then immediately upgrade it to 16 vCores, you’ll be charged at the 16 vCore rate for the first hour.

    Note: For a limited period through June 30th 2018, backup charges and IO charges will be free of charge.

  • How is the backup charge calculated?

    Backup storage is associated with automated backups of your instance. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage that’s consumed by your instance. There’s no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100 percent of your total provisioned server storage. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GB per month. For example, if you have the database storage size of 100 GBs, you’ll get 100 GBs of backup at no additional cost. But if the backup is 110 GBs, you’ll pay for the additional 10 GBs.

    Note: For a limited period, until June 30, 2018, the backup charges will be free.

  • Will I incur any network data transfer charges?

    There will be no additional charges for network data ingress or egress during public preview. Additional charges will be introduced at general availability.

  • What is Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server, and am I eligible for it?

    The Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server helps you maximize the value from your current licensing investments and accelerate your migration to the cloud. Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server is an Azure-based benefit that enables you to use your SQL Server licenses with active Software Assurance to pay a reduced rate (“base rate”) on SQL Database. Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server is available to all vCore-based options: SQL Database Managed Instance, Single Database and Elastic Pool. You may apply this benefit even if the SKU is active but note the base rate will be applied from the time you select it in the portal. No credit will be issued retroactively.

    You can activate the Azure Hybrid Benefit via the Azure Portal by attesting you have sufficient active licenses with Software Assurance. The Azure Hybrid Benefit works as follows:

    • If you have Standard Edition per core licenses with Software Assurance, you can get one vCore in the general purpose option for every one license core you own on-premises.
    • If you have Enterprise Edition per core licenses with Software Assurance, you can get one vCore in the business critical option (coming soon) for every one license core you own on-premises. Note: The Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server for the Business Critical option is only available to Enterprise Edition customers.
    • If you have highly-virtualized Enterprise Edition per core licenses with Software Assurance you can get four vCores in the General Purpose option for every one license core you own on-premises. This is a unique virtualization benefit available only on Azure.
  • What is the virtualization Benefit?

    The virtualization benefit is applicable to virtualized workloads on vCore-based Azure SQL Database. You can use it to convert 1 license core of SQL Enterprise Edition with active Software Assurance to get up to 4 vCores of General Purpose at the base rate. This makes moving virtualized applications to vCore-based SQL Database options highly cost-effective. For example, if you have 4 core licenses of SQL Enterprise Edition, you can receive up to 16 vCores of General Purpose at the base rate.

  • Can I use my SQL Server license on-premises and in the cloud?

    Your licenses must be used either on-premises or in the cloud; however, you have a 180-day grace period during which you can use licenses both on-premises and in the cloud to facilitate migration.

  • Can I apply Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server retroactively?

    No. Azure Hybrid Benefit cannot be applied retroactively.

  • What happens to my Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server if my Software Assurance expires?

    To use Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server, you need active Software Assurance. If your Software Assurance expires and you don’t renew it, you’ll be moved to the license included pricing of the respective SKU.

  • Pricing example in DTU based model for a single database with extra storage provisioned

    Suppose an S3 database has provisioned 1 TB. The amount of storage included for S3 is 250 GB, and so the extra storage amount is 1024 GB – 250 GB = 774 GB. The unit price for extra storage in the Standard tier is approximately ¥1.0812/GB/month, and so the extra storage price is 774 GB * ¥1.0812/GB/month = ¥804.4128/month. Therefore, the total price for the S3 database is ¥969.37/month for DTUs + ¥804.4128/month for extra storage = ¥1,773.7828/month.

  • Pricing example in DTU based model for an elastic pool with extra storage provisioned

    Suppose a 125 eDTU Premium pool has provisioned 1 TB. The amount of storage included for a 125 eDTU Premium pool is 250 GB, and so the extra storage amount is 1024 GB – 250 GB = 774 GB. The unit price for extra storage in the Premium tier is approximately ¥2.1624/GB/month, and so the extra storage price is 774 GB * ¥2.1624/GB/month = ¥1608.8256/month. Therefore, the total price for the pool is ¥2,208.75/month for pool eDTUs + ¥1,608.8256/month for extra storage = ¥3,817.5756/month.

  • How does the storage usage show in my bill when I select DTU based model?

    The storage usage fee will be calculated per Max Size a customer allocated. For example, when choosing S3 DTU based model database, Storage Included is 250 GB, Max storage allowed is 1 TB, while actual usage is 500 GB. In this case, the storage usage will be charged for 1024 GB - 250 GB = 774 GB.
