SQL Azure – Relational Data in the Cloud
Steve Hughes, Magenic
This session will review SQL Azure capabilities and tools. We want to look at what we can do on the platform and what may be some shortcomings of the platform at this point. We will take time to evaluate what place SQL Azure has within our data environments and some viable use cases for using it. Finally, we will crack open the SQL Azure Reporting CTP to get a “first look” at this latest offering from Microsoft.
