Microsoft on Tuesday announced the availability of a Premium preview for Windows Azure SQL Database with beefed-up features for cloud-based business-class applications.
Those features include reserved capacity for each database for better and more predictable performance. The Premium service "will help deliver greater performance for cloud applications by reserving a fixed amount of capacity for a database including its built-in secondary replicas," Microsoft said.
An e-mail alert said that current SQL Database customers--excluding free trials--can sign up to receive an invitation to the limited preview.
There's already lots of detailed information about the Premium preview. Our sister site Redmond Channel Partner covered the announcement, and Microsoft has an extensive guidance page with all the nitty-gritty details you could ask for. Scott Guthrie also provides some information on the release, in addition to discussing new support for performing "recurring, fully automated, exports of a SQL Database to a Storage account."
Microsoft said it "will continue to add business-class functionality to Premium databases over time, to further support higher end application requirements."
