Thoughts On Stretch Database

Kevin Hill looks at Stretch database:

  • Lowest performance rate is $1.25/hr or just under $1K/mo. Only goes up from there

  • “Stretch Database currently does not support stretching to another SQL Server. ” Azure only

I see the negatives overwhelming the positives at this point.  You also can’t modify schema while Stretch is active.
