I knew that because I'm a long-term Azure user, but maybe it should be clarified in the Azure Page as SQL Server/SQL Azure Database. SQL Database can be misunderstood as Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, etc. All of them are SQL Databases. This is misleading point for people new in the MS ecosystem. Furthermore, from my knowledge IBM is the one who started to develop SQL.
