SQL Data Services update
The Windows Azure and SQL Data Services team have been busy. Workflow was removed from .NET Services until they can support Workflow 4 and Access Control and the Service Bus got minor updates. Read more about it here.
The SQL Data Services team has unfortunately not released anything yet, but they did gave us an update on their weblog about what they will support in version 1. From what I can quickly see is that they’ll support most functions to be able to create tables, modify data and retrieve it using the standard functions CREATE TABLE, SELECT, JOINS, Transactions, etc… Things that’ll be removed are at least everything that has anything to do with the physical machine, because everything will be hosted and maintained by Microsoft.
