SQL Azure Database CTP Released – waiting for my token!

SQL Azure Team Announced the availability of the SQL Azure Database CTP. I am waiting, oh so patiently, for my token to arrive. For those who are not aware, this is a cloud implementation of SQL Server – yes a relational database in the cloud. Pricing you ask? 1GB database will run you $9.99. Need a 10GB database – that will cost you 10x more… $99.99 a month.

You prefer PHP… hey no problem. As we have already seen, you can host PHP based sites (running pure PHP v 5.3, no monkey business there) up in Azure. Microsoft has also released a PHP driver for SQL Azure.

Congrats to the team! More news after I get a token.
