Azure SQL Database Pricing

By : brianpaulrue

it helps some times TL;DR:
Azure SQL pricing is "flat": first you choose a performance level for your database which has a fixed cost (e.g. S6 for $580/mo or S1 for $30/mo), and this is billed by the second. Azure does not bill your account for actual IO/CPU usage.
code :
Monthly-price = ( Instances * Performance-level )

Azure pricing in case web server VM and database VM are in different region

like below fixes the issue Yes, the deployment as you described it would incur outbound data transfer charges. You would see some cost from the web server (making the call to the database), and some cost from the database server (results going back to the web server).
Here is the pricing page for Azure that explains data transfer rates. Notice that the rate varies by Zone. In your example, it would be between Zone 1 and Zone 2.

Azure SQL Database pricing is per database server or per user-created database

I hope this helps . You will be charged for each user-created database i.e. each of these 10 databases depending of their pricing tier.

How can we autoscale the pricing tier of Azure SQL database?

I wish this helpful for you Single Azure SQL Database supports manual dynamic scalability, but not autoscale. For a more automatic experience, consider using elastic pools, which allow databases to share resources in a pool based on individual database needs. However, there are scripts that can help automate scalability for a single Azure SQL Database. For an example, see Use PowerShell to monitor and scale a single SQL Database.

Auto Azure SQL DB Creation -DACPAC task how to configure database Azure pricing model

seems to work fine After many false starts due to deficiencies in the documentation due to the constant Azure churn I have a working script. This Script works and the web hooks allow it to be called from Azure Devops CI.
code :
[Parameter (Mandatory = $false)]
[object] $WebhookData

Write-Output $WebhookData
# If runbook was called from Webhook, WebhookData will not be null.
if ($WebhookData) {

# Retrieve Params from Webhook request body
$params = (ConvertFrom-Json -InputObject $WebhookData.RequestBody)

foreach ($param in $params)
    $DatabaseName = $param.DatabaseName
    $Edition = $param.Edition
    Write-Output "Found $DatabaseName"
    Write-Output "Found $Edition"
    Write-Output "Found $PricingTier"


$connectionName = "AzureRunAsConnection"

    # Get the connection "AzureRunAsConnection "
    $servicePrincipalConnection=Get-AutomationConnection -Name $connectionName         

    "Logging in to Azure..."
    Add-AzureRmAccount `
-ServicePrincipal `
-TenantId $servicePrincipalConnection.TenantId `
-ApplicationId $servicePrincipalConnection.ApplicationId `
-CertificateThumbprint $servicePrincipalConnection.CertificateThumbprint 
catch {
    if (!$servicePrincipalConnection)
        $ErrorMessage = "Connection $connectionName not found."
        throw $ErrorMessage
    } else{
        Write-Error -Message $_.Exception
        throw $_.Exception

$ServerName = "ServerName"
$ResourceGroup = "ResourceGroupName"
#$PricingTierLocal ="S2"
#$EditionLocal ="Standard"

Set-AzureRmSqlDatabase  -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroup -ServerName $ServerName -DatabaseName $DatabaseName  -Edition  $Edition  -RequestedServiceObjectiveName   $PricingTier

else {
# Error
write-Error "This runbook is meant to be started from an Azure webhook only."

        public void InitializeDatabase(BloggingContext context)
            if (!context.Database.Exists())
                SqlConnectionStringBuilder connstrBldr = new SqlConnectionStringBuilder(context.Database.Connection.ConnectionString);

                    cmd.CommandText = "CREATE DATABASE [" + context.Database.Connection.Database + "] (EDITION = 'standard')";

                Database.SetInitializer(new CreateDatabaseIfNotExists<BloggingContext>());
                context.Database.Initialize(force: true);
( EDITION = 'standard', SERVICE_OBJECTIVE = 'S0', MAXSIZE = 500 MB ) ;
