  • Azure Automation – the beginning of cloud ETL on Azure?

    I have maintained a watching brief on what I refer to as “cloud ETL”, that is the ability build ETL routines in a cloud environment and therefore leverage all the benefits that the cloud model brings*. Thus far my main opinion piece in this area is What would a cloud-based ETL tool look like? in which I laid out what features I thought a cloud ETL ...

  • Clone an Azure VM using Powershell

    In a few months time I will, in association with Technitrain, be running a training course entitled Introduction to SQL Server Data Tools. I am currently working on putting together some hands-on lab material for the course delegates and have decided that in order to save time in asking people to install software during the course I am simply ...

  • PowerShell Script to Deploy Multiple VM on Azure in Parallel #azure #powershell

    This blog is usually dedicated to Business Intelligence and SQL Server, but I didn’t found easily on the web simple PowerShell scripts to help me deploying a number of virtual machines on Azure that I use for testing and development. Since I need to deploy, start, stop and remove many virtual machines created from a common image I created (you ...

  • MySQL, NoSQL, and NuoDB

    I've been keen on MySQL ever since I first started using it heavily more than a decade ago.  In fact, I liked it well enough to include it as one of the four main database platforms, over and above the ANSI-ISO SQL standard, in my popular book SQL in a Nutshell. However, with the advent of NoSQL data platforms in the last few years, ...

  • Reading the tea leaves from Windows Azure support

    A few idle thoughts… Three months ago I had an issue regarding Windows Azure where I was unable to login to the management portal. At the time I contacted Azure support, the issue was soon resolved and I thought no more about it. Until today that is when I received an email from Azure support providing a detailed analysis of the root cause, the ...

  • Will SQL Azure make Normalization popular again?

    Normalization should be very popular and widespread. Unfortunately I can say that the 99% of developers that work with database (and thus design the database schema) don’t know it. Even worse they don’t even realize that normalization is a key point in application development. AFAIK developers and project managers don’t care too much of ...

  • The One Billion Node machine plus one

    I have been reading Jas Dhalliwal’s blog post series on the One Billion node machine (Part 1, Part 2) with interest where he talks about the notion of a network of machines acting in unison and the opportunities that that presents. In his own words: I describe a possible evolution of Public Clouds into Planetary IT complexes, where billions of ...

  • I spy a Live Framework portal

    Those that have followed my blogs for a while may know that I have a slightly banal interest in Windows Live and, more specifically, the Live Services developer platform'; if that doesn’t sound interesting to you then stop reading now. My interest mainly stems from the Live Mesh technology that was announced a couple of years ago and the data ...

  • Tweetpoll and RESTful Northwind go bye-bye

    On 31st January 2010 Windows Azure and SQL Azure will transition to becoming services that you have to pay for which means that my three small demos that are hosted up there are going to disappear hence I thought now would be a good time to review before they are digitally ground into dust. Tweetpoll Tweetpoll was a demo that I wrote back in ...
