How can we improve Azure SQL Database?

Increase limit of 50 databases per Premium Elastic Pool

The limit of 50 databases per premium pool might be fine if you have large databases, but for our use cases we have relatively small databases and many of them. This means we hit the 50 database limit quite quickly. We need brief periods of high performance for our databases so the Standard pools aren't sufficient.

    We have the same issue. It seems odd that basic and standard pools with 100 eDTUs support 200 databases, but premium pools with 125 eDTUs max out at 50 databases. Shouldn't higher pricing tiers have higher (or at least the same) limits?

    Would also be very interested in this for the same use case, many small DB's a couple times of week we need more than DTU's than the Standard tier provides
