SQL's Future Is Cloudy

There was so much news last week at PDC that I'll probably spend the bulk of this week bringing it all to you. We've already talked about Azure, Microsoft's cloud operating system/platform. Besides being a development platform, Azure is also a set of services that will run in the cloud. In this case, Microsoft defines the cloud as one of its own rather massive datacenters.

Running in this Microsoft-seeded cloud will be database services driven by a revamped version of good old SQL Server. Interested folks can get a sneak peak at these services by looking at Microsoft projects hosted on the SQL Services Lab Portal.
