Azure SQL Database Hyperscale support for single databases is now available
Published date: 06 May, 2019
The new Hyperscale service tier for Azure SQL Database is highly scalable, enabling a database to grow as needed with support for up to 100TB. Hyperscale database backups are nearly instantaneous and the time required to create backups or to scale up or down is no longer tied to the volume of data. Hyperscale databases provide rapid scale up and scale-out in constant time, regardless of the size of the database. This new service tier also provides the ability to scale compute and storage resources independently, giving you the flexibility to optimize performance for your workloads. Now generally available, Hyperscale practically eliminates the need to pre-provision storage resources and significantly expands the potential for app growth without being limited by storage size.
