SQL Azure Database is a cloud-based database service that offers developer agility, application flexibility, and virtually unlimited scalability, with a flexible, cost-effective delivery model. The robust underlying architecture provides reliability, high availability, and security.

In short, SQL Azure is simply a Microsoft branding change. SQL Services and SQL Data Services are now known as Microsoft SQL Azure and SQL Azure Database. There are a few changes, but fundamentally Microsoft’s plans to extend SQL server capabilities in cloud as web-based services remain intact.
