Windows Azure Benchmarks - Part 14: Sql Azure write throughput
One of the most common questions customers ask is how does windows azure perform.
Well Microsoft published a series of benchmarks in an excellent web site called azurescope.
The thing is azurescope is going down on January 15th 2012 so I decided to publish these benchmarks here and make sure they will be available to the public.
Let us discuss Sql Azure write throughput.
This test measures the ability of SQL Azure to handle write requests from simultaneous clients.
- Throughput increases with the increase in number of concurrent clients (NumberOfWorkers * ThreadsPerWorker), reaches a maximum limit and then decreases with further increase in the number of concurrent clients.
