SQL Azure pricing reduced

As published today in the Azure Team Blog, pricing is reduced for SQL Azure (by about 50%). 5 GB are now 26$ instead of 50$.

Furthermore SQL Azure is getting more attractive for small data apps with the new 100MB option:

Database Size

Price Per Database Per Month

0 to 100 MB

Flat $4.995

Greater than 100 MB to 1 GB

Flat $9.99

-> 4 CHF/Mt for high availability, reliability and self-management.
