A Database Transaction Unit (DTU) is a unit, of the resources that are guaranteed to be available to a single Azure SQL database (fixed allocated database per server not shared) An Elastic DTU (eDTU) is a unit, and set of resources (DTUs) that can be shared between a set of databases on an Azure SQL server – called an elastic pool. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GB/month. Azure Security Engineer Associate. From what I can read there's a min and a max but I have no idea what their scaling strategy is. That's decent performance for a free tier. Azure is $25,000/month less, however it’s not quite an apples to apples comparison, as Azure SQL DB is single database service as opposed to RDS which acts more like Managed Instance, or on-premises SQL Server.
