    I have just tested Basic Azure MySQL Database and there is a bit confusion because of wording. I was wrongly assuming that it is a single database (similar to Azure SQL Database) but it is actually a server. That means you can have as many databases as you want to. So if anyone wants 1-3 single databases, it might be still expensive but if you have got multiple small not heavy traffic databases it might be convenient because of all other benefits on Azure platform.

    I am using MySQL Workbench to connect to my databases. I get instant connection to my other remote (none Azure) databases but when I was connecting to Azure MySQL it took at least 5 seconds. I didn't test further but will see when I hook it to my websites.
