The solution is primarily used as a database.

SQL is basically a relation database, it can be used for any key-value related data models. Anything which is a table and column-based can be used. If you are an already existing SQL customer or a document tester worker, then I think it is common to go for SQL or Oracle. More present, you have Cosmos DB, it can be used as both SQL and NoSQL databases. This is the database that we are exploring today, and what we are using more.

We're using it for scalability. Everything is on Azure SQL for us. It is an enterprise application data warehouse, so all our applications are on this. It is useful for entire data warehousing. It is also good for microservices applications. We have its latest version.

It is simply our relational database.

We are in infrastructure development. We are using this solution with Power BI to consume the data. We are creating on top of this SQL server. It will be consumed by Power BI for the customers, where they can customize their reports.

We normally use it for development and other services. We have on-premises as well as cloud deployments, but it is mostly deployed on the cloud.

We use it as a backend product. We are using the Managed Instance and the SQL Database.

We are using it for an application in two different models, the PaaS model and the SaaS model. One is the product, so we are using it as a SaaS model. We are using the other one simply as a PaaS model. For its deployment, we are sort of using the highest model in which one instance has only VM and the SQL installer on it. Another instance is simply using SQL Azure.

I use SQL Azure strictly for active data rescue. All of my work is stored in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. I am working on a special product with another person — it's a secret product, so, unfortunately, I can't talk about it.

As consultants, we deploy this solution to our customers both on cloud and on-prem. Most of our clients buy the solution as an application package which requires a database. If they are a "Microsoft shop," I recommend they use SQL Server. I'm the development manager and we are customers of Azure.

It is a transactional system. We use it to visualize financial transactions, such as cash in, cash out, in real time.

I work for a consulting firm which uses the technology marketing projects from Microsoft and other IT vendors, re-routing the product, and creating a technical and architectural guide; basically I work on the consulting assignments. I am a lead consultant in one of the leading IT companies in India and I've been implementing bridges and consulting in an architectural support role. I've been using Azure as a stack and that's where my proficiency is. We're partners with Azure.

I am a consultant and some of my clients use this solution for their database. SQL Azure is a platform, as opposed to a product. You do not select a specific version. It has very little administrative ability, such as the ability to back it up, but it offers much more comfort for the user.

It's a platform that we leverage for multiple uses. There isn't a specific primary use case for the solution.

Our primary use case is for content management and publishing offsite for external users. We also use it as the intranet to get the largest professional view of the SharePoint version.

We offer this solution as part of a bundle to our customers for which we offer technical services. We are aiming to have a centralized marketplace. We have experience with hybrid, on-premises, and public cloud deployments. We have a complex environment and are slowly transitioning to this solution. Our production environment is the only one that we're putting into Microsoft Azure. For security reasons, we still have some systems on-premises.
