comment Workflow for SQL Server + Azure SQL development?
"Visual studio has Database Projects" ... yup! We ended up going that route so every database change is documented and code-reviewed. It is brilliant and I'm surprised it doesn't get more blog/press coverage...

It's not a very good fit because Trust Services adds another unique server to the topology. If there is something we can bolt onto the (Web)Application server or the SQL server that would stick out less as a sore thumb. Also, I think it doesn't address #2 above in the question

comment How does one scale SQL Server 2008 or 2012?
Great! Any specific MySQL sharding literature/tutorials/links you recommend? Hopefully I can apply some of those patterns to SQL Server. I'm learning (quick!) and you're quite the resource!!
