Well.. In Azure PaaS we have two options to create and manage SQL database
1.Azure SQL database
2.Azure Managed SQL Instance
In managed instance have capability to create and manage up to 100 databases.
Compared with Azure SQL database each DB has specific computing & storage, but in Managed instance common compute & storage for all DBs inside the Managed instance.
