Interesting stuff coming from Microsoft soon
A couple of interesting (and possibly BI-related) technologies are coming soon from Microsoft:
- I see today via Nick Carr that soon we’ll be able to run Windows and SQL Server on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). I wonder if that includes Analysis Services too? If so, that would be handy.
- Also announced today, the new MS cloud operating system, coming within the month
- Windows High Performance Computing (HPC) server is due to launch at the beginning of November (see here for a news report on it, here and here for some details). Hmm, I see SQL Server is listed on the ‘supported applications’ page… surely there’s got to be some kind of tie-in here with the whole MatrixDB/DATAllegro MPP stuff?
