SQL Azure Federation

SQL Azure Federations allows DBAs to scale out their database by federating (sharding) their database. SQL Azure Federation makes it easier to set up the federated databases, and automate the process of adding new federation members.

If you are new to SQL Azure Federation, check out this great blog post on this (SQL Azure Federation – Introduction) by Shaun Xu.

There is a codeplex project that facilitates the process of migrating data from a single database to multiple federation members in SQL Azure Federation.

The Project home page also includes links to other resources for learning SQL Azure Federations.
