Federation Statements (Azure SQL Database)
Updated: April 24, 2014
This topic is OBSOLETE. You can find the most current version in the SQL 14 Transact-SQL Reference.
This topic provides a reference for Transact-SQL statements that are specific to federations in Microsoft Microsoft Azure SQL Database. These Transact-SQL statements only work with Azure SQL Database, and are not available in other versions of SQL Server.
|The current implementation of Federations will be retired with Web and Business service tiers. Consider deploying custom sharding solutions to maximize scalability, flexibility, and performance. For more information about custom sharding, see Scaling Out Azure SQL Databases.|
