Cloud Computing with SSDS. That's not a typo that's SQL Server Data Services. Currently in beta this could be the next big thing. We will first look at the model of cloud computing and try and identify where it 'fits' in today's enterprise. Will this be the product that replaces Express or Enterprise edition? Will it replace them both? Only time will actually tell but by looking at the functionality provided in the current (whatever that is) release of SSDS we will try and draw out a picture of this emerging market. This will be followed up with some practical demonstrations of the functionality available in SSDS as we attempt to build our own data cloud.
