When Azure SQL database becomes available, Azure will replace most of its database apps, but there will be no SQL databases for you to use.
The Azure SQL family of databases will continue to be used in Azure for the foreseeable future, but it’s the Cardinality database that will replace them.
The cardinality database was first announced in June of 2018, and it’s already available for free.
While the cardinality family of database apps was first introduced with Azure SQL 1.0, Azure already has the database available for SQL Azure in its SQL Azure SQL Databases section.

If it seems like you already have a database app installed, it’s because it’s still on Azure, but you can uninstall it using the Azure Management Portal.
There, you can use the Azure CLI to uninstall apps that you no longer want.
If the app doesn’t have a license or you don’t have the right permissions, the app can be removed.
