Rename Windows Azure SQL Database as Windows Azure SQL Server.

You can have as many as 999 databases on one  Windows Azure SQL Database (Server).

Windows Azure SQL Database name is confusing. 

Also SQL Database short is used in documentation. ORACLE, Sybase & DB2 are all SQL databases.

Azure SQL is better for short.

@@version should change too as well, I think this is the old name:
SELECT @@version  -- Microsoft SQL Azure (RTM)

Hey Kalman,

Thank you for your feedback regarding the naming of our database platform. We have heard feedback that the current naming can cause some confusion and will take this into consideration moving forward.
