Mindmap of Amazon AWS

leave a comment »

Earlier this month I published a mindmap of SQL Azure since I’m consulting with the SQL Azure team at Microsoft.  Cleaning up my laptop I found a mindmap I’d made of Amazon AWS.  It is quite large, but it provides a quick overview of all their services and is useful for quick comparisons.

Here is another one of Cloud Providers which I need to segment out to IaaS, PaaS, SaaS.  Perhaps I’ll break them up by public, private and hybrid solutions as well.

Concept Map of SQL Azure

leave a comment »

I’ve been reading through the SQL Azure blog and their wiki to get a complete view of its current state.  I’m helping the SQL Azure team with marketing and strategy.  As an artifact of my efforts to ramp on SQL Azure, I built a concept map or mind map using FreeMind.  FreeMind really helps me collect my thoughts in a manner where I can collect, sort and graph so that I can quickly view complex concepts in a easily consumable manner.

I like that SQL Azure was architected with High-Availability and Failover from the start.  I like that you can use the same tools and data access mechanisms.  I’m not sold on OData yet nor do I like that unless you have an MSDN subscription, you don’t have a free access tier for usage.  Amazon provides one for their cloud data products.
