Hi there,

My client provides a shared SQL environment which rules as each instance can only support 30 Gb data and they can provide 2 instances for one database. I have a database which could grow up to 50 Gb in next year. My question is can I use these 2 instances next year when the data grows to 50 Gb? If yes, how? Or share me some links for guides. Thanks in advance.

You would have to shard your data accross multiple DBs. It is not something that is easily done out of the box, but it is possible. Windows Azure SQL DB makes it much easier I understand.
