Scale Multiple Azure SQL Databases on One Logical Server for Increased Performance and Efficiency

Scale Multiple Azure SQL Databases on a Logical Server
Introduction
Azure SQL Database is a fully managed, cloud-based, relational database service. It provides a comprehensive set of features and capabilities designed to make it easier to deploy, manage, and scale a relational database in the cloud. One of the key features of Azure SQL Database is the ability to scale a single database to different levels of performance. In this article, we will focus on scaling multiple databases on a single logical server.

Understanding Logical Servers
A logical server is a logical container that can contain one or more databases. It is the logical equivalent of a server, but it is not a physical server. A logical server is used to group related databases that require similar management and configuration settings. Logical servers are used to manage multiple databases as a single unit, which simplifies the tasks of managing and monitoring multiple databases.

Scaling Multiple Azure SQL Databases
Azure SQL Database provides several options for scaling multiple databases on a single logical server. The most common option is to scale each individual database to the desired performance level. This is often referred to as “vertical scaling”, as the performance of each database is scaled up or down independently.

Alternatively, Azure SQL Database also supports “horizontal scaling” for multiple databases on a single logical server. Horizontal scaling is the process of adding additional databases to the same logical server to increase capacity. This is often used when multiple databases are needed to support a single application, or when additional capacity is needed to support a high volume of transactions.

Managing Multiple Databases
Azure SQL Database provides a range of tools and features to help manage multiple databases on a single logical server. These include the ability to manage multiple databases as a single unit, set up automated backup and restore operations, and monitor multiple databases for performance.

Conclusion
Azure SQL Database provides a comprehensive set of features and capabilities that make it easier to deploy and manage relational databases in the cloud. With the ability to scale multiple databases on a single logical server, Azure SQL Database makes it easier to manage multiple databases as a single unit. By leveraging the tools and features provided by Azure SQL Database, it is possible to manage and monitor multiple databases with ease.
