Azure SQL Database serverless is a compute tier available for single Azure SQL databases. Its primary aim is to provide the best price for performance.

This session will provide an overview of what Azure SQL Database serverless is and demonstrate how to set it up. We will also look at some use cases as well as highlighting the limitations. You're probably thinking where does serverless fit in? This session will answer that question.

By the end of the session, you will have enough knowledge to be able to decide if Azure SQL Database serverless would be a good fit for your use cases.
