Azure SQL Database Previews 100TB Tier

Azure SQL Database, Microsoft's hosted database service, is previewing a new single database deployment tier called Hyperscale, which supports databases up to 100TB, removing the 4TB barrier of current tiers. The new tier is designed for large-scale transactional database applications that require low latency and high-end throughput. Hyperscale deployments also provide independent scaling of compute and storage resources, unlike current tiers. Customers can scale compute resources to meet variable demand, while paying for persistent storage for the database separately.
