Automatic compute scaling with serverless for Hyperscale in Azure SQL Databases
Achieving performance goals while managing costs through efficient resource allocation can be a difficult task, especially for complex database workloads that have diverse usage patterns.
The Azure SQL Database serverless setup offers a viable solution to tackle these challenges.
However, previously, serverless was only accessible in the General Purpose tier.
Workloads that could benefit from serverless may require increased scale and performance, along with other distinct capabilities exclusive to the Hyperscale tier.
But now, the advantages of both serverless and Hyperscale have merged into a single database solution.
Let’s see what it’s all about.
