    Thanks for that @Sam Cogan .

    For MySQL, I researched there is no limit to the number of databases that can be created in a server for Azure Database for MySQL. However, multiple databases share server resources, and performance requirements rise as the number of databases grows. I recommend that you create multiple servers running Azure Database for MySQL.

    Yes, for MSSQL it is 5000 databases per server. You can find all the limits here
