The other “requirements” of the managed datastores in cloud

We(me and @Vinod – author of  extremexperts) have supported migration to managed SQLAzure stores for quite sometime. Customers like ease of manageability, availability and decent performance.

There is another class of customers who keep getting pushed for “consolidating” databases and manage them for SLAs (DR/HA,backups-go-back- intime-x,performance). These databases are not in TBs but range from few GBs to 100s of GBs.

1. There is need for synchronization with on- premise databases and gasp sometimes it needs to be bidirectional.

2. There is need of meeting security SLAs by providing auditing views, encryption.

Promise of cloud where it enables ease of management/availability also needs to enable these scenarios. Hopefully in future we will get these.
