    Hello @Udaya Janaka Hettiarachchi In your free Azure subscription, you can create SQL database for 100,000 vCore seconds of SQL database serverless usage per month with 32 GB of storage and this cycle repeats forever. And, if you want to use Azure SQL Managed Instance, you get 750 vCore hours per month with 32 GB of storage for a window of 12 months. Similarly, for VMs (Windows and Linux), you get 750 hours each of B1s, B2pts v2 (Arm-based) and B2ats v2 (AMD-based) burstable VMs for a window of 12 months. Make sure to keep a tab on the official Azure free subscription page to know your free services and quotas.
