        The connectivity from MDS to Azure SQL or PaaS MDS will be a great feature to extend the limitations on usage of Azure SQL.

        We're deploying a DW on an Azure SQL DB. Our master data is growing more complex as we bring in additional data sources.

        Now we have to choose between creating our own MDM functionality or redeploying to a VM so we can use MDS.

        This request has been out here for a year and there isn't any evidence that is is even on the product roadmap.

        Have a client that is very keen on having this feature available in Azure SQL! Any news?

        We installed SQL Server 2016 on an Azure VM in order to continue using MDS. We could migrate to Azure SQL Database exclusively except for the fact that MDS is not available there.

        Would be great to have MDS as a SaaS option in Azure (with Azure SQL repository), ideally integrated with the Data Catalog.

        I am also interested to know the timeline for bringing MDS into Azure MS SQL. We currently develop matching and cleansing algorithms and would like to implement them in the cloud.

        Hi @Leo Li, I'm interested in this development to move MDS as a Azure hosted service. We just spend several months building out our MDS solution on premise and are already thinking about how we can move this to the cloud given the distributed nature of our data

        Hi @Leo Li. Will the WCF library be available for API calls on Azure? Will the performance of the WCF library be better than MS SQL Server 2016? We want to implement MDS, using 2016, but due to performance issues with the APIs we might go another route.
