Support TCP connections to table/blob storage from within the datacenter (low latency, ultra fast).
We have the need for ultra-fast record range retrieval from table storage (a la on-site SQL Server) from our web roles in the same data center. This is driving a data-intensive BI engine that relies on low-latency access to massive streams of data. Currently, we are looking to MongoDB to fill this gap.

I agree. TCP is the way to go especially to to support high scale enterprise applications

HTTP endpoint works great for client applications, but expecting server apps to do each transaction over http is wasteful. kindly enable TCP connection

Without this feature Azure table storage despite its goodness is not a serious contender for enterprise critical workload.

I fully agree. This feature is crucial to low-latency applications. Please review this suggestion and update it with a status, so we know what your thoughts are.

I would really like to see this feature be supported as well. When you insert or retrieve a large amount of data from table storage the overhead in the HTTP protocol is just massive. Especially when you compare to extremely efficient alternatives such as MongoDB.
Please give a super-efficient alternative to HTTP OData!
