Hi Experts,

I want to give my application stability and robustness but I am not seeing the limitations on service on the MS website.

1) is the Azure service a sandboxed or shared implementation? I need to be able to take my C++ extended procedures where ever we go.

2) Is the product overkill for a small shop with minimal traffic?

Thanks

There's a lot more to Azure than just a "hosted SQL Service".   If you're starting small, then you mibght be better off with just a self-hosted web service (with an SQL backend).  Internal customers could hit the SQL server directly, and External clients will hit the web service.
Azure would come in if you needed guarnteed uptime, redundancy, load sharing, globalization, etc...

If I were to go to Azure, do you know what limitations are on it? Can I use my C++ modules?

Are you talking about "Managed Storage Procedures"?   What is your C++ modules used for?

Oops, I see where you did say "extended stored procedures"... sorry about that.
So, the answer is NO... the version of SQL server for Azure does not support extended stored procedures.
