Azure Database for MySQL consumes unreasonable amounts of backup storage. ~50Gb database uses ~2Tb of backup storage with 7 days backup retention. And there is no option to opt out of automatic backups or reduce retention period. Because of that cost is prohibitively high. Had to stop using this service when MS started charging for backup storage. Self-hosting MySQL is much cheaper.
