  • Blog Post: No SQL?

    I don’t normally blog about things which don’t deal directly with SQL Azure but the No SQL movement seems to have become hotter than normal these days in particular after Digg’s announced move to Cassandra a couple of weeks ago.  I saw a blog entry yesterday which I thought really did an effective...

  • Blog Post: ALTER’ing SQL Azure for MIX

    So, this post will really serve two purposes.  The first is to serve as a shameless plug for the some of the sessions coming up this week in Las Vegas for SQL Azure.  My friend and colleague David Robinson will be in town giving what I can only tell you will be an EXTREMELY cool demo of some...
  • Blog Post: Feedback to the SQL Azure team

    Hey all, During PDC09 we spent a bunch of time handing a survey for folks to fill out to give feedback to the team.  I would really encourage you to fill this out.  If there’s a data type that you’d like to see supported, feature enabled, enhancement, etc please try some time to fill this out...

  • Blog Post: SQL Azure and limits

    Quite a few folks have been asking recently about the limits we have in SQL Azure and I thought I would take some time to chat about this here.  The question varies of course by the person asking but the question inevitably goes something the following, “Hey, why don’t you guys let me have a database...
  • 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...

    I've been rather silent here for sometime. This is primarily due to the fact that the whole dev team for SQL Azure (SADB not SAD by the way) has been really pushing hard to make our deliverables for PDC this year. As has been explained previously, we've done pretty much a 180 degree move here w.r.t the...
