Windows Azure Tables notes

Notes from camp:

  • CreateCloudTableClient()
  • CreateTable
    Create Partition Key (don't use identity key as partition key)
    Create Row Key, must be unique per PartitionKey
    Use a lightweight copy to improve performance
  • Use "batching" to increase performance, and also save money by reducing the number of transaction
    For example, ???Context.SaveChanges(SaveChangesOptions.Batch);
  • Queries
    Over 30 second is cancelled
    result > 1000, a continuation token is returned
  • Transaction
    Limit 100 per batch
  • Column limit: 260 (URI length)
  • Data transfer: only counts the transfer in/out of data center (not within data center)
