What is Azure SQL as a Service, how is this useful to me as a CSP partner?

Azure SQL as a Service is a Platform as a Service offering from Microsoft. This is available through the CSP channel for partners to include in their solution to customers. SQL PaaS gives the flexibility to scale seamlessly without the need to manage the base operating system on which SQL runs.

Given its low cost compared to a Hosted SQL or a SQL in a VM scenarios, this is easily affordable and will fit well for SMB database requirements.
