    A common need for users of Azure Table Storage is searching data in a Table using query patterns other than those that Table Storage provides efficiently, namely key lookups and partition scans. Using Azure Search, you can index and search Table Storage data (using full text search, filters, facets, custom scoring, etc.) and capture incremental changes in the data on a schedule, all without writing any code.

    "This is now on the SQL Azure roadmap, though delivery will be post CY12.", but what about people using Table Storage??? Does this mean there will be no Full Text Search feature out of box coming to Table Storage anymore? How do we who are using Table Storage as a backend have this search capability or do we need to re-write everything we did for Table Storage to Sql Azure now? Could you please clarify?

    Not being able to do basic linq operations like "where o.PartitionKey.StartWith()" is quite limiting. Having full text search would be extremely welcoming! Otherwise I am thinking to have a worker role creating the Lucene index and put it on the BLOB storage.

    I just posted a question/suggestion to the Azure Storage forum on this secondary index feature. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsazuredata/thread/38f07a77-cbe1-4627-9c49-29b314dbfd42

    Basically not needing to make big code changes for our existing app would be great when this feature comes out. So could you make it so that we could just label any existing column and make it the secondary index, this would help avoid major code changes. Thanks.
