Moving to public cloud such as Azure, AWS or even private cloud services you need to be tracking costs and seeing if you are “effective”. What is the best way of doing this with Microsoft Azure?
Nobody wants to waste money and being in the cloud is no exception! Luckily for us Azure is very efficient in tracking usage patterns and its associated costs, in this case, potential cost savings.

Naturally the cost of Azure SQL Database directly relates to what tier and performance level you are using. Starting from the least expensive basic database to the more premium ones I thought it would be worthwhile capturing the costs (GBP) across all tiers.
