Azure SQL vs. SQL server

qa-featured

With SQL database, multiple instances are run on different machines, which provide higher levels of availability. These machines would change both cost and performance. Azure SQL and two databases- a development database which uses a local SQL server, and a production database. The production DB doesn't offer design tools such as table/view designer. The design and work are carried out on the local SQL server, and DACPAC files are created of these, which modify the Azure DB by making a copy of the DB you developed using a design replication system. These files ensure greater built-in resiliency and simplified administration. The security factor is quite a concern here because data is stored in the cloud. Scalability, on the other hand is a plus, over regular SQL servers, as the DB can be bumped to a higher edition to run larger queries and the scale down for the normal loads.
