Event Details

This session will take an exploratory look at Microsoft's cloud-based relational database offering. We'll lift the hood and look at its many benefits and features, and how it easily fills the need for a highly available and scalable database service in the cloud. We'll discuss how SQL Azure helps ease provisioning and deployment, and how Microsoft takes care of the physical administration so that developers and DBA's alike can focus on the aspects of their job they really care about.

Food and drinks will be provided and we will have a raffle.  We will then do our anual bag stuffing in preparation for SQL Saturday this weekend - March 2nd.  Register at:
