In 2011, we introduced Federations to enable building large scale solutions on SQL Azure. In this session we cover the best practices and patterns for building database tiers with best of breed scalability with databases stretched over to hundreds of nodes and with TBs of data and with thousands of concurrent users in the cloud. We cover issues such as scale-first database design practices and designing fan-out queries and dealing with identity generation. If you are architecting systems that need to go beyond the capacity of a single node in the cloud, systems that need to handle spikes and bursts, or systems with multi-tenancy and elasticity for great economics, this is the session for you. #TEDBI408
