none
Is there an equivalent "Job" regular SQL Server?

  • if you're referring to SQL Agent type of Jobs that you can schedule, then no, there's none.

    depending on the tasks/steps your job does, you might be able to get away with scheduling something using the Windows Azure Mobile Services Scheduler (e.g.., configure WAMS to execute a stored procedure based on schedule)

  • Just to add to what JuneT outlined.

    Scheduling could also be done with the Aditi scheduler which is part of the Azure store.  I have used it in the past and it is a great scheduling tool.

    If you are open to using a 3rd party service for this, you can also use Cotega to schedule execution of SQL Azure jobs.   Full disclosure, I work on this service.
