imageFor those who have been following Microsoft’s S+S message you may be excited to hear about SQL Server Data Services (SSDS) which was announced at the MIX08 Keynote today.

So what is this new cloud storage offering by Microsoft anyway?

  • Microsoft hosted data storage service based on SQL Server
  • Accessible via REST and SOAP web services APIs

It's an exciting addition to the Microsoft line up of data storage products and services.  It's great to finally be able to talk about it and we are really excited to see how developers use the service.

I'll continue to blog about this as well as post some samples.
