Deploying SQL Server to Azure Container Instance via ARM

Rajendra Gupta builds an ARM template:

The Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template is a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file for deploying Azure resources automatically. You can use a declarative syntax to specify the resources, their configurations. Usually, if you need to deploy Azure resources, it might be a tiring experience of navigating through different services, their configurations. With the ARM templates, you no longer need to click and navigate around the portal. For example, you can use configure the template for Azure VM or Azure SQL Database deployment.

Click through for a step-by-step walkthrough. I will say, though, that I tend heavily to revise ARM templates the Azure Portal creates. They tend to make everything parameters, to the point where you get inundated with context-free decisions.
