  • Blog Post: SQL Azure: Invite codes, traffic patterns and feedback.

    We've sent out the first couple batches of invite codes this week for SQL Azure (apologies if you haven't yet received yours). It's important to keep in mind that in general services tend to do this kind of thing for good reason. So, what are the reasons? There are many but these are the two that I look...
  • Blog Post: SDS coding examples – Part 1 (C# & ADO.NET)

    So, as I did with the original SDS I want to outline some code examples that other developers can use to get a sense of how to interact with the service. In general, this will be much easier now that we have shifted more to the relational model as some of the more abstract (okay maybe not sooo abstract...

  • Blog Post: It’s been awhile…

  • Blog Post: cURL'ing up with SQL Server Data Services

    We've begun working with some external customers (and a considerable number of internal ones) on the project and one of the first requests that came up was regarding the use of cURL. cURL , as many of you already know, is a pretty cool command line utility which can be used to issue HTTP requests. However...

    Since my last post (just after we released the service) several others have written some really great stuff on SSDS. I've listed these below for reference.

  • Blog Post: Dryad - a more generalized version of MapReduce

    It looks we've presented Dryad to the folks over at Google. The actual video from the talk is available here . If you aren't aware of waht Dryad is exactly you can think of it as a more generalized version of Google's MapReduce. The nice thing about Dryad is that it really bake in any semantics into...
