Microsoft has brought the power to synchronize data with either SQL Server on-premise or SQL Azure in the cloud to the world of mobility.
With the new version 4.0, the little-database-that-could has grown up into a powerful server database ready to take on the web.

The act of tracking changes made by each SQL Server Compact or Silverlight sync subscriber can cause a lot of locking and blocking on the server.
