Microsoft has recently released the SQL Azure Q4 2011 changes, later in October at PASS conference we heard about the SQL Azure Q4 release for 2011 and now the release is live with much enhanced features on scalability, Monitoring and Management of the data. Initially the maximum size of the SQL Azure database was 50GB which is now increased to 150GB and for the customer who use the maximum size, the cost remains the same. For the new 150GB maximum SQL Azure database usage Microsoft charge a very nominal fee of $499.95.   [more]

Some of the major enhancements of the SQL Azure Q4 2011 release are as follows

  • Size of the database increased from 50GB to 150GB
  • SQL Azure Federation
  • Metro Style SQL Azure Portal
  • Enhanced Import/Export DAC CTP
