Automating Azure SQL Database Scaling

Arun Sirpal shows how to use Azure Logic Apps to auto-scale Azure SQL Database:

When I was presenting my Azure SQL Database session at DataRelay (used to be SQLRelay) I was asked (over coffee) about auto scaling capabilities. Quite simply there is nothing out of the box to achieve this. The idea of auto scaling would be good where you would need a burst to fulfill higher demand in terms of workload for a time duration, you know, something like “end of the day, Friday night sale” for your database.

Classically you would probably go down the PowerShell route via a runbook, but I am different.

In this case, the automation is timer-based rather than load-based.
