Interested in cloud computing? Have a few databases you'd love to move out of your datacenter but need proof the cloud will really work? Then a new testing program from Microsoft might be perfect for you.

Project Huron is a "synchronization-enabled cloud data hub" that runs under Azure. The idea is to have the database in the cloud, and have multiple users query and update the data without conflict.
