Azure SQL Database vs MySQL: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure SQL Database as "Managed, intelligent SQL in the cloud". It is the intelligent, scalable, cloud database service that provides the broadest SQL Server engine compatibility and up to a 212% return on investment. It is a database service that can quickly and efficiently scale to meet demand, is automatically highly available, and supports a variety of third party software. On the other hand, MySQL is detailed as "The world's most popular open source database". The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.

Azure SQL Database and MySQL can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

MySQL is an open source tool with 3.98K GitHub stars and 1.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MySQL's open source repository on GitHub.

MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.

      We use MySQL and variants thereof to store the data for our projects such as the community. MySQL being a well established product means that support is available whenever it is required along with an extensive list of support articles all over the web for diagnosing issues. Variants are also used where needed when, for example, better performance is needed.

      I am not using this DB for blog posts or data stored on the site. I am using to track IP addresses and fully qualified domain names of attacker machines that either posted spam on my website, pig flooded me, or had more that a certain number of failed SSH attempts.
