SQL Azure SU3 is completed

Microsoft just completed the rollout of SQL Azure Service Update 3 at 6 datacenters worldwide with the following promised features:

  1. 50 GB Database Support – You can now store even more data in a single SQL Azure database as the database size has been increased to 50 GB.
  2. Spatial Data Support – SQL Azure now offers support for the Geography and Geometry types as well as spatial query support via T-SQL.
  3. HierarchyID Data Type Support – The HierarchyID is a variable length system data type which provides you the ability to represent tree like structures in the database. Microsoft will be following up in the coming days with a blog post on ways to use this data type in your applications.

SQL Azure is now also available in two new data centers located in the East Asia and the West Europe Region.
