Vermont.NET October: SQL Azure vs. Azure Table Storage: A real world comparison.

Pizza and Soda for this meeting sponsored by


Free parking in the garage across the street from the Champlain Mill Building. Please park in the "permit parking only" section of the garage to ensure you don’t get a ticket. You will need to go through the middle entrance for public parking, go past the 2 hr and metered spots and around to the first level where it says permit parking only and you should be good to go.

SQL Azure vs. Azure Table Storage:

A real world comparison

Which Azure storage system should you use for your cloud application? Our company has been running our products on Azure since Azure was put into production in January 2010 and has been wrestling with this question ever since. Using a subsystem from a real production application as an example, we'll build a version using SQL Azure and Entity Framework and a version with Azure Table Storage. We'll analyze the affects each option has on cost, scalability, toolchain and application design and maintainability.

Microsoft has focused heavily on newcomers in it's guidance for Azure storage options. This presentation should help illuminate what to expect when you go beyond 'hello world' with these technologies.

Speaker: Zac Morris, WattMetrics
Zac Morris has worked as a developer for the last 10 years and has specialized in .NET development for the past 6. He has built systems for LOB and scientific data management/analysis, environmental sensor data acquisition and tele-operation of large robotic vehicles.
