I want to show you how I went from having multiple single SQL databases in Azure to a database elastic pool within a new dedicated SQL Server. Once setup I create and use elastic jobs. This post is long but I am sure you will find it useful.
Create a new “logical” SQL Server.
Create a new elastic pool within this logical SQL Server.
Move the data from the old single SQL databases to the above elastic pool (couple of ways to do this but I used built-in backups).
Confirm application connection.
Decommission single SQL databases.
Create / setup an elastic job.
Check the controller database.
Definitely worth reading if you are looking at hosting multiple databases in Azure.
