Thanks to all that came out to my “MongoDB and Windows Azure” presentation at MongoDB Boston. It was great to be invited back to present on two of my passions – Cloud and NoSQL. It’s also been fun watching the evolution of the Microsoft and 10gen partnership over the past year as the technical implementation of the MongoDB on Windows Azure solution has matured and expanded – now to encompass not only Platform-as-a-Service but also Infrastructure-as-a-Service.
We covered a lot of ground in a short time, so I wanted to establish this blog post as a landing point for the myriad of references touched upon in the session. Please leverage the great resources that both 10gen and Microsoft have to offer, and if you have any questions on the session or need additional pointers on these materials, please send me a note via the comment option at the bottom of this post. I do make it a point to respond to every comment or question.
