Microsoft has announced the preview of elastic database transactions in Azure SQL Database.
In the Microsoft Azure Blog, Torsten Grabs, Principal Program Manager Lead for Azure SQL Database says, “Distributed transactions have consistently ranked among the most requested features for SQL Database. You can now perform operations across several databases in SQL Database with transactional properties.”
He continues, “This enables the same guarantees that you are familiar with in SQL Server when using Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC). The guarantees with elastic database transactions make sure that changes to different databases in SQL Database happen either in all of the databases or none. This enables the familiar atomicity and isolation properties that ensure your state across databases remains consistent.”
