SQL Server as a Cloud Service – sponsored by Dell Software

The war of the cloud providers continues and database services is one of the many arenas. These services provide a platform that reduces management by trading off detailed control of your underlying OS and hardware. In this session we will do a comparison of the two most popular platforms for SQL Server: Amazon RDS and Azure SQL Database and explore the strengths and weaknesses of each one.
