CloudSpokes: From Microsoft Azure to Database.com

CloudSpokes, an Appirio-led community rearchitected their solution from Windows Azure to Salesforce’s Database.com:

Initially, Messinger said, his team was really happy with Windows Azure’s table storage and blob storage features, but trouble arose when it came to deploying computing resources called “Web Roles.” […]

Additionally, said Messinger, Windows Azure required some level of database-administration know-how, which is something the CloudSpokes didn’t really want to deal with. It wanted to focus on the front end and other business-critical aspects rather than on DBA work. So it looked to Database.com, and Messinger and Singh haven’t looked back since beginning the transition in mid-July.

This is the first time I’m reading a scenario where DaaS (database as a service) is explicitely mentioned as the main reason for migrating the architecture of an application.

Preliminary Comparison of Database.com and SQL Azure Features and Capabilities

Extensive comparison of the upcoming Database.com and Microsoft’s SQL Azure:

Salesforce.com will unbundle its underlying relational database engine from Force.com when the firm releases Database.com’s commercial version in 2011. In the meantime, developers can testdrive Database.com with a free Force.com developer account, which includes a Database.com database having:

  • Three enterprise user accounts
  • 100,000 rows of storage per month
  • 150,000 transactions per month

According to the article, Database.com will support ACID transactions (Apex code), triggers and stored procedures (Apex code), relationships, a query language, full-text search. Looks like a relational database in the cloud, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be underneath.
