SQL Database for Azure Student

Hi!

Recently I created an account with my student email. Is there any way to create a simple SQL database (eg. sakila demo) without spending the free credits? I've tried to create an azure SQL database but it is consuming nearly 4 usd per day.

Please try the trick provided here.

You can also use below PowerShell to create a free one.

 New-AzureRmSqlDatabase -DatabaseName $DatabaseName  -ServerName $sqlServer.ServerName 
 -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroup.ResourceGroupName -Edition 'Free' 
 -RequestedServiceObjectiveName 'Free'

Hi @ErvinWilneder-0280 Thank you for posting your question on Microsoft Q&A.

You can explore all the database SQL pricing
SQL Database serverless is best for scenarios where usage is intermittent and unpredictable and you only pay for compute resources you use on a per-second basis, which optimizes overall price performance. Please check this documentation , it will help better help you understand how you can manage your Azure SQL Database costs.
