I have an application that's running query per second. Will it elevate the cost of my SQL Database?

    Hi @Lorenz Joseph Lavilla ,

    the costs of an Azure SQL Database are based on:

    • Computer SKU (performance, vCPU, Memory)
    • Storage (to store the database)
    • Backup Storage (space you need for backups)

    There are no direct "number of transaction/query" based costs for Azure SQL Databases.

    Maybe this helps: Azure Pricing Calculator

    But at the end: The more queries you have per second the more compute performance you maybe need.

    (If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you)

    You are charged for storage size, bandwidth and cpu time, so yes the more queries the higher the charge. See pricing


    note: you are charged the cpu cost of the queries, not the number.
