This solution is scalable. We have a couple of administrations using this solution and the rest are indirectly using third-party tools. They are developers and administrators. View full review »

This scalability of this solution is five out of five. It is easy to scale, although it is a bit pricey compared to the competition, even with the Microsoft discount that we get for being a big enterprise. We have approximately three hundred users for Azure SQL. With respect to Power BI reporting that can run queries in Azure SQL, I think that there are thousands. We have no plans to expand at this time. View full review »

Data Architect at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
One of the reasons we decided to go with Azure was because we knew we could scale-out. We were happy with this scalability before we committed to the product. Right now, I know only two of our clients are using the solution. They are actually a government organization. But we know we can scale up when we have to. View full review »

The scalability is good. I think we are already using a high availability cluster for 2016, so I assume that it will be the same with the 2019 version. We are also using it with our data recovery system, so it is not an issue. We have approximately twelve to fifteen developers and approx. 900+ customers who will be using the data warehouse. We are acquiring customers on a monthly or quarterly basis, so it is a pretty big user base and we expect that our usage will continue to increase. View full review »

Practice Head BI at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are satisfied with the scalability. A lot of people use the analytics and I would estimate it to be between 50 and 100 users. Most of them are business users, although some are power users who built the system for them. View full review »

Scalability is the best part of going with a cloud-based solution. I don't have to worry about server space. Azure elasticity allows us to scale as much as we want, and it is pay-as-you-go, so we can scale up as we need to. What we propose to the people who are implementing this solution is to start with the minimum requirements and then scale up based on demand. View full review »

We haven't grown a lot so I am not able to say if the solution is scalable or not. View full review »
