Is there anything currently out there that allows scalable capacity for MSSQL?

Similar to Grid Technology...like what Oracle pushed. (not the damned Control...but the actual Grid tech)
From what I understand, Europe is using this more than the US. (last time I heard)

There was a company that offered something like it 2008/2009...called xkoto Gridscale...but nothing recently.
And yes, I know this is a virtualized solution.

Basically, the concept is to increase resource capacity by spreading out the db\app in multiple nodes.
Then if we want to add resources, we add a node and it load balances it.

The problem is my own company/project wants to have it's cake and eat it too..

Any insight would be appreciated.
