Windows Azure Table Storage- Partition or Row key length is limited to 256 characters in Storage Emulator


If partition/row key is longer than 256 characters, you will get an error when inserting the data in Azure table storage, while you are running your application in compute emulator or accessing table storage in storage emulator directly. This problem will only happens in Storage Emulator, but will not happen in Windows Azure Table storage in cloud.

 

The differences between storage emulator (in compute Emulator environment) and Windows Azure Table Storage in cloud are documented at link below:
