The Microsoft Azure platform offers SQL Azure to make migration easier, but it also offers a set of highly scalable storage services that take a different approach to data storage: Tables, Blobs and Queues. They pose a new set of challenges to application designers since they are offer no transactional or relational consistency. In this session we will take a look at some practical application design considerations for working with these storage technologies.
