Earlier this month I presented at the TTSSUG's first event for 2011: an introduction to Microsoft SQL Azure titled ' SQL Azure 101'.
I started the presentation by explaining what a SQL Azure Database is and then moved into a discussion about the benefits of the product. The SQL Azure Architecture and Network Topology were described in order to give more insight into the security and high availability capabilities that exist. I also spoke about the differences between SQL Server and SQL Azure and then ended the session by highlighting how SQL Azure can be used in some typical business scenarios to benefit an organisation.
If you were unable to attend the session and have no knowledge about SQL Azure then this video would be helpful: What is SQL Azure Database.
The information that was presented at the event can be found in the following white papers:
