DTUs and vCores in Azure SQL Database

Arun Sirpal gives us one take on whether to use DTUs or vCores for Azure SQL Database:

If you are building database solutions in Azure , using Azure SQL Database then you will know that you have a purchasing option decision to make. That being should you use a vCore model or DTU approach?

Arun prefers the vCore model for solid reasons. I agree with the sentiment when we’re talking about production databases. For small-scale, personal stuff, however, the bottom end of the DTU model is much less expensive.
