Given that most Windows Azure SQL Database customers are now advised to use with custom sharding pattern for scale-out, we are re-evaluating when you would want to use sync for a sharded environment – is it syncing from on-prem SQL Server to multiple shards in the cloud, synchronizing between the shards in the cloud, or syncing from multiple shards down to on-prem SQL Server? We’d appreciate your input on this.Sean commented
sync on premises sql server database with a federated database
Good idea and it ties to the idea on monitoring APIs. We will consider this.
We will evaluate the priority for this.Sean commented
