Understanding AAS Synchronization

None of the Multidimensional and Tabular semantic models I’ve implemented required scaling out, but I understand that some scenarios might benefit from it, such as B2B or B2C reporting. Depends on the implementation approach, another benefit could be implementing a highly available farm. Implementing a scaled-out, on-premises SSAS farm is not easy. There are different techniques but all of them involve a compromise between availability and latency. Azure Analysis Services sought to make this easier. It’s as easy as changing a slider and AAS synchronizes everything somehow, right? Wrong. Here are the high-level notes of how AAS synchronization works:
