Testing performance of Azure SQL Database as a key-value store
Testing performance of Azure SQL Database as a key-value store
Executive summary Our testing shows that Azure SQL Database can be used as a highly scalable low latency key-value store. Starting with a cost-efficient 4-core General Purpose database, we see an order of magnitude increase in workload throughput as we increase dataset size by 100x and scale across the spectrum of database SKUs to a Business ...

Serverless Streaming At Scale with Azure SQL
Just before Ignite, a very interesting case study done with RXR has been released, where they showcased their IoT solution to bring safety in building during COVID times. It uses Azure SQL to store warm data, allowing it to be served and consumed to all downstream users, from analytical application to mobile clients, dashboards, API and ...

If you are new to Node.js like I am, using Tedious to access Azure SQL can be challenging at the beginning. My understanding is that Tedious, while being fully asynchronous, doesn't support nor Promises nor the more modern async/await pattern. Tedious, in fact, uses events to execute asynchronous code and so a bit of work is needed ...
