After Microsoft released its beta version of “SQL Server Data Services“; I was more interested to know what kind of considerations were taken care in the design and architecture of SSDS in order to get performance, distribution of data and scalability as it is developed on top of SQL Server.
To my surprise, I noticed Microsoft is conducting the live event to answer some of these questions by following up Ryan Dunn blog; Today I also got the confirmation to attend the event and I look forward to get some of my general questions answered.
It will be interesting to see the pricing model of SSDS in the coming days, and might even attract if they make it FREE for initial customers and/or by setting the limit on the data usage by distributing it as part of OS. It will be really cool if they could also integrate some kind of access mechanism as part of the windows operating system itself to access/store the data.
I hope Microsoft will also change the name of SSDS to something else before the final release as Data Services is not catchy and does not sound right (check yet another post on the similar lines).
