Update: In-Memory OLTP in Azure SQL Database Premium
Monday, June 5, 2017
Starting today, you can take advantage of the following improvements to In-Memory OLTP technology in Azure SQL Database Premium:
 • You can create more than eight indexes on memory-optimized tables.
 • You can use sp_rename for renaming memory-optimized objects.
 • We have eliminated the limit on the number of commit dependencies. You will no longer receive the corresponding error message.
 • You can use the CASE expression, the CROSS APPLY operator, and all JSON functions in natively compiled T-SQL modules.
 • You can create computed columns in memory-optimized tables.

Microsoft joins Cloud Foundry Foundation
However, we aren’t done. Far, far from it. Today, at the Cloud Foundry Summit in Santa Clara, I am honored to join Abby Kearns, executive director of the Cloud Foundry Foundation on stage to announce that we have joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation as a Gold Member. Cloud Foundry on Azure has seen a lot of customer success, enabling cloud migration with application modernization while still offering an open, portable and hybrid platform. The partnership with the Cloud Foundry Foundation extends our commitment to deeply collaborate and innovate in the open community. We remain committed to create a diverse and open technology ecosystem, to offer you the freedom to deploy the application solution you want on the cloud platform you prefer.
In addition to joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation, we are also extending Cloud Foundry integration with Azure. This includes back-end integration with Azure Database (PostgreSQL and MySQL) and cloud broker support for SQL Database, Service Bus, and Cosmos DB. We even included the Cloud Foundry CLI in the tools available in the Cloud Shell for easy CF management in seconds. Here are some additional details on the integration offered between Azure and Cloud Foundry.

Episode 119 - Azure Data Lake

by Sujit D'Mello March 17, 2016

Cale and Sujit have a great chat with Azure Principal PM Arindam Chatterjee on the topic of Data Lake. Arindam demystifies the service for us and gives us some use-cases and scenarios where it makes sense to use it as opposed to other big data offerings from Azure.

Arindam Chatterjee is a Principal Program Manager in the Microsoft Azure Big Data team.  He comes to big data after extensive experience in Transaction Processing, Authentication & Authorization technologies in Windows Core OS, and designing the Microsoft Dynamics security model. Arindam and his team are now focused on building a scalable analytic workload service that your big data jobs can run on as efficiently and reliably as possible across thousands of machines. In addition, he is also responsible for making Azure Data Lake services ready for adoption by Enterprises by building the appropriate Security & Compliance features.

Azure DevTest Lab is a service that helps developers and testers quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test the latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts. Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Lab to provision on-demand environments. Scale up your load testing by provisioning multiple test agents, and create pre-provisioned environments for training and demos.

Today we are announcing the Docker Volume Plugin for Azure File Storage. Leveraging the SMB 3.0 protocol support capabilities of Azure File Storage on Linux. This open source Docker volume plugin allows Docker containers to have data volumes stored outside the Virtual Machine and therefore makes it easy to migrate stateful containers between hosts.
