What is Azure SQL Database Hyperscale

Azure SQL Database is based on SQL Server Database Engine architecture for the cloud environment. There are three architectural models that are used in Azure SQL Database:

  • General Purpose/Standard
  • Hyperscale
  • Business Critical/Premium

The Hyperscale service tier in Azure SQL Database is a new service tier in the vCore-based purchasing model. The Hyperscale service tier in Azure SQL Database provides the following additional capabilities:

  • Support for up to 100 TB of database size
  • Nearly instantaneous database backups 
  • Fast database restores that are based on file snapshots which take in minutes rather than hours or days
  • Rapid scale out to provision one or more read-only nodes for offloading your read workload 
  • Rapid Scale up and to accommodate intermittent heavy workloads
