Microsoft Data Platform
Rich data services from SQL Server
Using of course SOAP REST and APP within SQL Server SSDS.
Live contacts has ADO.NET Connections...
SYNC Framework synchronize contacts between endpoints.
pulling or GET from url into xml or web service.
Metadata file with Vcard info.
No invoke needed within browser just service on box?
SQL Server Data Services:
- Application Agility
- Scales without limits
- Business Ready SLA
Scalable or downgradable to 2005 or 2000?
SQL Server Data Services Layers:
- SQL Server Data services
- SQL Server Data Services Platform
- Global Foundation Services
Authority - Dns Name
Container - Unit of consistency/search. No schema required.
Entity - Property of name/value pairs. Update/change
Need to find SSDS explorer.
SSDS syntax is very close to LINQ syntax.
Demo was a Simple REST POST
Service runs on SYNC framework
Flexible Entity Model
- Smallest unit of measure(unit of update)
- ID- unique within parent container
- Kind-track user type ex:Joblisting, resume, etc.
- Version- update timestamp on each operation
- Can change instance type or add additional properties
- Support for simple types:decimal, string, bool, etc
- All properties are indexed.
When you add a property to an entity automatically searchable.
*Entity properties may differ in type and instance.
*Container stores flexible entities, Unique name within parent.
*Authority holds DNS name, unit or billing and geo-location, analog to namespace.
Web Service API (SOAP/REST)
Both supported, Endpoint secured by SSL
Each authority has single owner
Secured using single owner credetials
Authority: Create Update and Delete
Entity storage, update, delete, and query
Query uses simple LINQ-like syntax
Exposes URI for each resource:
QueryContainers(GET) with query
So Sync Framework takes away the middle tier to a web service app. Write your front end with all your <%#Eval("INFO")%> from datasource = to url of sql server. Is that exactly safe?
Beta by invite only!
Live not available until first quarter 2009... So is this just a service from Microsoft or a true add on to your own SQL Server?
Live will be pay per use. Wow this just went another direction. Hate paying for services.

This looks like Microsoft's answer to Amazon S3 or Simple DB Services.
