How can we improve SQL Data Sync?

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.

    We're using this functionality to offer several real time changes within an Airport. This functionality is important for us to be able to communicate changes to our partners sooner.

    Hello, I just saw on the topic in continuous synchronization, the solutions we are working on and delivering to our clients to communicate with multiple store location will look to have a continuous synchronization or interval less than 3 minutes. customers see it as a slowing system even when we try to offer an explanation about the intervals.

    I echo the need for this. We operate a LOB where users records results of an inspection in a web page (transactional database) and can then generate SSRS report (hosted in Azure VM) that retrieve data from the reporting database. This 5 mins latency requires him to wait 5 minutes after saving his last inspection before he can generate the result of his inspection.

    We have a booking system for squash courts, if online members book out courts it is possible for on premise staff to double book when they take walk-ins or phone bookings due to the 5 minute delay. I'm happy to pay for a higher service tier to get more frequent syncs
