Table Write Performance

Following a recent post about how slow table storage can be, I decided to investigate how fast table storage could be.

This article has some excellent tips on improving the write performance:

This page has some metrics produced by Microsoft’s Extreme Computing Group:

Apparently speeds of up to 4000 entities/second have been reached. Whether this is a sustainable write speed or not, I’m not sure, but I’m going to give it a go!
