Differences between Azure SQL (PaaS) Database and SQL Server on Azure VMs (IaaS)

Azure SQL Database features
Azure SQL Database shares a common code base with SQL Server and, at the database level, supports most of the same features. The major feature differences between Azure SQL Database and SQL Server are at the instance level.

Resolving Transact-SQL differences during migration to SQL Database
When migrating your database from SQL Server to Azure SQL Server, you may discover that your database requires some re-engineering before the SQL Server can be migrated

Migrate your SQL Server database to Azure SQL Database
Moving your SQL Server database to Azure SQL Database is as simple as creating an empty SQL database in Azure and then using the Data Migration Assistant (DMA) to import the database into Azure.

Azure SQL Database access control
To provide security, SQL Database controls access with firewall rules limiting connectivity by IP address, authentication mechanisms requiring users to prove their identity, and authorization mechanisms limiting users to specific actions and data.
