Migrating to Office 365, need to keep SQL Server?

We are interested in using Office 365 Enterprise E3. We have SQL Server as a backend to Access forms for our users. Ideally, we'd like to mirror our in-house SQL Server data for web / Sharepoint / Office App access by remote users. Would we need SQL Azure also and is SQL Azure compatible with Office 365 anyway? I also cannot find info about limitations on the web site space with Office 365 E3 and whether PHP etc. can be used with it.

Anyone know?

This is a complicated topic. It sounds like you're at the point where you want to make an assessment of whether a hybrid on-prem/O365 environment is for you.

I'd read this and the related articles as a starting point; http://blogs.technet.com/b/tothesharepoint/archive/2013/04/16/get-your-head-in-the-cloud-hybrid-for-sharepoint-2013-office.aspx

The thing is that O365 isn't set up for you to extend it in the way you can with an on-premises install. Boosting storage with your own SQL Server or hosting PHP on it are not in the picture. As O365 is shared with other customers outside your organisation customizations have major limitations.

As for storage in O365 the service description has the details here; http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13602

Broadly speaking it's down to the number of users you have signed up.
