Video on SQL Azure adding TDS / TSQL support

I recently had to run down some content and a video on SQL Azure for one of my ISVs. The topic they were looking for more info on was SQL Data Services with TDS / TSQL support.

The CTP for SQL Azure is currently available. It become available in August. You can read about the release on the SSDS team blog.

Note that SQL Azure was formerly SQL Data Services.

Jared Bienz, one of the Architect Evangelists on my team, pointed me to this great Channel 9 video that talks about the changes in SQL Azure to enable TDS. It talks about how the services are implemented in the Azure back-end, how they scale and the changes developers will need to consider when targeting the platform.

They also mention that ADO.Net Data Services is supported, which I believe means RIA Services is not too far behind, and they talk about the future of SQL Azure. Definitely worth an hour of your time, IMHO.
