Standard Shared Tier

The shared tier is suited for light database workloads or for systems with low concurrent users, suitable for CMS systems and systems with low transaction volumes. This may provide a better alternative to a SQL express database as backups, maintenance and management are taken care of and the database server is clustered and provides a higher level of availability. Each shared tier database is a single database on a clustered pair of SQL Server 2014 servers that feature both SQL Clustering and Hypervisor level clustering.

Standard Dedicated Tier

The standard dedicated tier is suited for substantial dedicated workloads that run core business systems.  Each SQL Server runs on a dedicated Windows 2012R2 server with SQL Server 2014 Standard edition.
