I can run database without running servers.

Scalable, Self-Managing Database Service

Why handle all of the provisioning, patching, and management of database servers when someone else can do it for you? SQL Azure is a highly available, scalable, multi-tenant database service hosted by Microsoft in the cloud. Developers don’t have to install, setup, patch or manage any software. High availability and fault tolerance without physical administration. Now that’s cloud power.

Hands-Free Management

No physical administration required – software installation and patching is included, as this is a platform as a service (PAAS)

Flexible Pricing

SQL Azure is a cost-effective approach for managing data, since it offers a flexible, consumption-based pricing plan, minimal capital and operational expenditures, and easy scalability to adapt to your changing needs.

Familiar Tools

Customers can use existing knowledge in T-SQL development and a familiar relational data model for symmetry with existing on-premises databases. Additionally, customers can get productive on SQL Azure quickly by using the same development and management tools they use for on-premises databases services.
