SQL Data Sync

Azure SQL Data Sync (Preview) is a service that enables you to synchronize the data you select across multiple SQL Server and SQL Database instances. To synchronize your data you create sync groups which define the databases, tables and columns to synchronize as well as the synchronization schedule. Each sync group must have at least one SQL Database instance which serves as the sync group hub in a hub-and-spoke topology.

If you have any feedback on Azure SQL Data Sync service, we’d love to hear it.

  5. Sync table between Row-stored and Column-stored

    I want to use the Row-stored table for OLTP,
    and to use the Column-stored table for Analyze using Power BI.

    So, I hope to sync table between Row-stored and Column-stored.
    There are the Row-stored table on Azure SQL Database standard,
    and There are the Column-stored table on SQL Server Express.

  9. Get Notification when Data Sync fails

    Need to be able to get a notification if the sync fails. I cannot be checking in portal to find failures.
    Not having this ability would be a show stopper for me.
    Is there some sort of query I can use to monitor failures?

  10. ability to rename schema and table names

    if we need to sync 10 databases to single database and have some common tablenames, we can't use data sync. Can It provide an option to rename schema as well as table in destination so that we have same data from different databases without worrying for the names.

  11. Improve Log Readability on Error

    If a sync agent or sync group fails, the error is long an very difficult to read in the blade. You should be able to click on the error and it expand to another balde

  12. Allow multiple logins to same server/database

    Allow adding same server and same database with different logins. Currently if I try to add another connection to the same database on the same server, the action is aborted.

  13. Have EventHub as a target for data sync

    If Data Sync could send data to event hub reliably from SQLDB or SQL on premise one could then build your own processing, whether it be to DW, DB, stream insight, aggregate etc.

  15. SYNC Preview - sync rules not loading

    Hello,

    I'm using SYNC Preview to sync 2 SQL db servers located in different countries. I have a bug to report - the tab "Sync Rules" is not loading when clicked. I have experienced this issue since 10-24-2015 and am not able to successfully SYNC due to this bug. I may have to use a different cloud service to host our company's SQL databases if this bug persists as this bug makes it impossible for me to successfully sync our databases. Any info. regarding workarounds or solutions would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Andrew Tomp

  16. Provide a roadmap for SQL Data Sync

    Provide information on what Microsoft has in store for the future of Data Sync. There has been hardly any work or updates to it in years, it has been in preview for that whole time.
    I really want to use this service as there is no equivalent on the market, but am hesitant to as it could be discontinued at any time.

    Is this product dead?

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are actively working on the roadmap, and will share publically when we have a concrete plan. Meanwhile, it would be great if you could share with us what scenario are you looking to use sync for. If you would like to be contacted offline, do leave a message and I’ll get back to you. — Linda Wang

  17. Sync data from Views to Tables

    Allow the data source to be a view instead of a table. Allows me to transform the data a bit before it's put up into azure.

    (Actually wonder if this it would work if I set the sync up with tables then switch them for views).

  18. Support change data capture

    Instead of trigger based loads, Support Change data capture as a way to identify changes to a table.

    We currently use CDC for incremental loads to our data warehouse, Adding triggers and tables to support Data Sync duplicates this information.

  19. Add a "Validate" or "Repair" function in the Sync Agent

    Currently if the "instead of" triggers are (for whatever reason) removed from a table, changes are no longer tracked. In this scenario no logs are raised anywhere and the sync continues to show a healthy state, even though changes are no longer being sync'd from the client back to the Hub.
    When a DBA or application modifies the schema of the table it is possible that the result might be a table with similar structure but now without the triggers.
    We need a quick way to check for these kind of discrepancies and fix them when detected.

  20. Allow continuous synchronisation or intervals less than 5 minutes

    Current smallest interval is 5 minutes, allow me to set this to between 1 and 4 minutes or a continuous synchronisation option. A wait of up to 5 minutes for sync is not always acceptable.
