I am under a really specific scenario. I have a database on a customer's site and a website on Azure cloud that connects to that database.
User is on a 50mbit fiber but this is obviously slow. So I am thinking of implementing replication with SQL Server on the local Azure server.
Is there a way of implementing the reads from the replica but the writes on the main database (I am thinking about this so that I don't have to deal with merges and I don't really care about the write speed)? Moving everything to cloud is not an option as on site there are a lot of clients that are already connected.
