Microsoft.Azure.SqlDatabase.ElasticScale.Client 1.3.3

Microsoft Azure SQL Database: Elastic Database Client Library

This client library allows ADO.NET developers to create applications that implement and use the pattern known as database sharding in Azure SQL Database. Sharding is a scale-out strategy that spreads data across a number of independent databases. The library includes APIs for creating and managing shard maps, routing SQL operations to the appropriate shard, and performing queries that cross many shards.
