Native MySQL Support and Portal Improvement
ClearDB is too overpriced. We should be paying as we go. Also, the new Portal still misses so many features available in the old portal. And some of the features of the old portal aren't working either. Both are half-assed right now.
We suggest you try Azure Database for MySQL managed service. Please see more details, including pricing, here: https://aka.ms/AzureMySQL
Note that currently service is in Public Preview and pricing is 50% of full pricing at GA (general availability of the service) that is expected in Q1 2018.
