Mark Vaillancourt looks at Elastic Database Jobs in Azure:

The new Elastic Database Jobs are designed to echo well the functionality the folks working with SQL Server are accustomed to on-prem with SQL Agent. But it’s even better than that. There are many features that are just baked in that you no longer have to worry about. I’ve presented on the new Elastic Jobs as part of a larger presentation on the overall Elastic tools associated with Azure SQL Database a handful of times. That presentation is called Azure SQL Database Elastic Boogie and references Marcia Griffith’s hit song Electric Boogie (The Electric Slide). Yeah. I know. That will explain the use of the word boogie all over the place.

Even with it just being a very new private preview, my experience has been a great one. Huge kudos to Debra and her team on that.

This sounds pretty good.  I really like the dynamic resolution portion and wish that on-prem SQL Agent jobs could do the same out of the box.
