Answer

The virtual core (vCore) purchase model used by Azure SQL Database provides several benefits over the DTU purchase model:

  • Higher compute, memory, I/O, and storage limits.
  • Control over the hardware generation to better match compute and memory requirements of the workload.
  • Pricing discounts for Azure Hybrid Benefit (AHB).
  • Greater transparency in the hardware details that power the compute, that facilitates planning for migrations from on-premises deployments.
  • Reserved instance pricing is only available for vCore purchase model.
