Introduction To Cloud Computing and SQL Azure

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility over a network.

SQL Azure is a cloud-based service from Microsoft offering data storage capabilities similar to Amazon S3 and Amazon Relational Database Service as a part of the Azure Services Platform.

Unlike similar cloud-based databases, SQL Azure allows relational queries to be made against stored data, which can either be structured or semi-structured, or even unstructured documents. SQL Azure features querying data, search, data analysis and data synchronization. SQL Azure uses Microsoft SQL Server as a backend.

During this course students will learn the following:

  • Define cloud computing.
  • Learn the benefits of cloud computing.
  • Understand the different types of cloud computing services.
  • See a simple Windows Azure application.
