Cloud Database Scalability with SQL Federation

You have migrated your SQL Server database to Windows Azure SQL Database (AKA SQL Azure), and you have migrated your application to Windows Azure. Now what? As the load on your database begins to increase, the need to scale your new SQL Database instance becomes a realization. In this demo-filled session we'll explore SQL Federation, Microsoft's solution for cloud database scalability and the scalability model for the cloud and how SQL Federation solves the scale-out issue over the traditional scale-up model typically found on-premises. We'll look at the architecture of SQL Federation and you can apply SQL Federation to your cloud database solution. This session will also spend some time looking at cloud database scalability solutions for cases where SQL Federation isn't an option and the pros and cons for designing your own scale-out solution.
