I am currently evaluating features of Microsoft Azure, and want to try their Azure Database for MySQL service in a little test project. I just need a very basic database with minimal performance and no backups etc. However, prices seem to be north of 200$/Month.

Currently I have a hard time to find out the pricing for an MySql or MariaDb database. The prices seem also to be dependent on which way you try to get them:

Do I really need a full Db Server (with dedicated processor cores) and Database? Or is there a cheaper option to run something like a serverless MySql database or from within a container?

Note: The wording of this question is based on feedback from Are questions about Azure pricing off-topic?
