In this talk we’ll look at the myriad options for storing data in Microsoft Azure, both first-party and third-party, and how a real application will likely use a mixture of data stores to achieve performance, scalability and cost-effectiveness.
The talk will cover:
Windows Azure Storage
Windows Azure SQL Database (Web, Business & Premium)
SQL Server VMs
3rd-party options such as MongoHQ and ClearDB MySQL
There may be more, if NDAs have been lifted. By the end, you’ll know which options work best for which scenarios and application areas, and be ready to build new applications that target Azure, or migrate existing ones to the platform.
