Obviously federations can be used in many different ways; multi-tenancy for scaling to spikes and bursts or for gradually growing workloads. It is great for getting you over the capacity limitation of a single node in public cloud (typically
a commodity machine) or the limitation of a single SQL Azure database like storage or computation capacity or simply transaction throughput with a single SQL azure database before you get throttled. But… But… But all that aside… The main reason in all these cases it is the amount of overcapacity you maintain.
