I need to move a small (< 3GB) MS SQL database to the cloud and access it from a local Windows .Net program.
What I have tried:
I have done some research but not sure where I should host the DB. I've briefly looked at Google, AWS, Azure but still confused. Especially pricing. Probably others should be considered. One issue I did find is that it seems more difficult to access the DB when you don't have fixed IP's which will be my case. How do they calculate the pricing?
I'm just looking for some general guidance at this point as to where to host and any pricing information.
