Microsoft SQL Azure – A Database for the Cloud.

Quote:
If you are a SLQ database administrator or developer, Microsoft Azure will give you with multiple database features normally found on your server. Cloud based computing has received a lot of publicity. Microsoft is presenting a SQL Database called Azure that is a cloud-based relational database service built on the back of existing SQL Server technologies like Sql Server 2005, or SQL Server 2008. It provides a scalable, highly available, and multi-tenant service hosting a database by Microsoft on the cloud. For IT database managers, SQL Azure Database helps to address the problems associated with the deployment and distribution of multiple databases.

Interesting.That video was very Google-esque, heh.

With all these cloud-based hosted services I fear for the jobs of in-house companies such as sysadmins and DBAs. If moving to a cloud service is more cost effective than having to buy servers with high RAS features, planning a disaster recovery plan, and having people manage those servers then the chief information officer is probably going to lay off IT employees

That is unless Microsoft/Google or any other cloud-based service provider is opening new jobs for sysadmins/DBAs/network admins/etc to manage their servers.

Hum... I believe this may fall in the same category of "my company's data is private, why should I trust them to host it for me?" thread of Cloud OS and Cloud Office applications.

This can be handy for random websites and bloggers around which have lots of public data, but I don't think companies will use it any time soon. Having said that, I guess my team's jobs are safe -- for now.
