Sarah Dutkiewicz continues a series on learning Azure. First up, Azure Functions:
Azure Functions are not something you’ll see rendered on a front-end somewhere. They’re a serverless solution used for doing things in the back-end and the middle tier.

These are just a few of the data stores available. Check this page of Azure Databases for a matrix of the databases available compared by their features.
