    SQL Azure Roadmap Simplifies Scale Out Needs with Bigger Data, SQL Azure Federation


    sql-azure-logo-lgThe SQL Azure Q4 2011 Service Release will be available by end of 2011 and is aimed at simplifying elastic scale out needs. Announced at SQL PASS Summit 2011: Upcoming Increased Database Limits & SQL Azure Federation. Key features include:

    • The maximum database size for individual SQL Azure databases will be expanded 3x from 50 GB to 150 GB.
    • Federation. With SQL Azure Federation, databases can be elastically scaled out using the sharding database pattern based on database size and the application workload.

    • New SQL Azure Management Portal capabilities.
    • And more.
