SDS is now a Killer Database in the Cloud

I’ve been working on SQL Server and SQL Data Services evangelism for the past year and half…  There was a period of time when SDS didn’t look much like SQL Server so telling the story of how SDS fit into the Microsoft Data Platform was much more difficult.  With today’s announcement about the changes to SDS things are starting to look the same.

The basic principle is that SDS is now a full relational database in the cloud.  We get all of the same high-availability and automatic scale that SDS has always promised with the common database programming paradigms we all know and love: tables, triggers, stored procs, foreign keys…

I recorded an interview with Nigel Ellis, SDS Architect, which we’ll be publishing on Channel 9 shortly after mix.
