        CLR Triggers and SPs are very critical for the overall performance of our application. Hence, we can't move to SQL azure.

        CLR is the only reason for us at this point to stick to on-premises. I wish Microsoft would consider adding CLR to Azure.

        I understand the CLR is complex in a multi-tenant environment, and with worker roles it's fairly easy to work around, but I use CLR a lot (template replacements, regex) so i'd love to have it!

      • AndrewAndrew commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The only way to get real regex functionality. In fact why don't you just add in one module as a clr that has a regex match function since that's the main reason most people that I talk with use it.

        Seems noone from SQL Azure want to talk about the adding back of CLR, maybe they have big issue to do that, and they haven't figured it out how to do it.

        Really sad to see it isn't supported. I just came across a situation perfectly solved by CLR and I was hoping to use SQL Azure as my data back end, this is a dissapointment.

        We need CLR for Regular Expression parsing. If there will be no CLR in Azure, we need something TSQL-native. Regular Expressions are not new technology...

        Aggregate functions are the things I would most like to see in terms of CLR support. These have given use huge perf gains for some types of query and it's a big blocker for pueruaging my collegues to even look at SQL azure

        I would like to see realised "full CLR support":
        CLR SP, CLR UDF, CLR Types, and possibility to write custom aggregate functions, based on CLR.

        You can now use the SQL Spatial data types with SQL Azure database. It would still be nice to have the ability to use the SQL CLR just as in SQL Server.

      • wyx1999wyx1999 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, CLR is very important, without CLR. It is like the SQL Azure is back to SQL 2000

      • Jamie ThomsonJamie Thomson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yep. Supporting CLR would mean the CLR types (spatial and hierarchyid) would be open to us as well. Bring it on!
