- Amazon Releases Relational Database As A Service – My Initial Thoughts | CloudAve
Nice angle: clouds can't escape RDBMS, let alone Windows. Yup: "After resisting the demands for a relational database for a long time, Amazon has suddenly jumped into the game. I am suspecting that this is an attempt to preempt Microsoft's announcement about the public release of Azure SQL relational database cloud later this month at PDC '09. I see a pattern here. For a long time, Amazon was not keen on releasing Windows based instances as a part of their EC2 offering. Last year, at about the same time, when it became clear that Microsoft will announce a Windows cloud at PDC '08, Amazon preempted the announcement with their own Windows based EC2 instances. I like this competition as I strongly believe that such a competition is good for the Cloud marketplace."
