Conceptually, running SQL Server on an Azure virtual machine is not that different from running SQL Server in a remote datacenter. In contrast, SQL Database offers database-as-a-service. With SQL Database, you do not have access to the machines that host your databases. For a full comparison, see Choose a cloud SQL Server option: Azure SQL (PaaS) Database or SQL Server on Azure VMs (IaaS).
