Presentation: "Azure without SQL"

Track: Cloud and NoSQL / Time: Thursday 16:50 - 17:50 / Location: Room 202/203

Just like on-premise web applications, most cloud-based applications are powered by data. In traditional on-premise architectures, a relational database such as SQL Server is normally used to host the data.

While the Azure platform offers SQL Azure to make migration easier, it also offers a set of highly scalable storage services that take a different approach to data storage: Tables, Blobs and Queues. They pose a new set of challenges to application designers since they are offer no transactional or relational consistency. In this session we will take a look at some practical application design considerations for working with these storage technologies.
