Take a deep dive into the Azure SQL Database Hyperscale Service Tier and discover a new form of cloud architecture from Microsoft that supports massive databases. The new horizontally scalable architecture, formerly code-named Socrates, allows you to decouple compute nodes from storage layers. This radically different approach dramatically increases the scalability of the service. This book shows you how to leverage Hyperscale to provide next-level scalability, high throughput, and fast performance from large databases in your environment.
The book begins by showing how Hyperscale helps you eliminate many of the problems of traditional high-availability and disaster recovery architecture. You’ll learn how Hyperscale overcomes storage capacity limitations and issues with scale-up times and costs. With Hyperscale, your costs do not increase linearly with database size and you can manage more data than ever at a lower cost.
The book teaches you how to deploy, configure, and monitor an Azure SQL Hyperscale database in a production environment. The book also covers migrating your current workloads from traditional architecture to Azure SQL Hyperscale.
