I always worked with SQL server and never tried Azure yet. Day before i came up with a new design idea at work place. The idea is to develop a website that would connect Azure on the cloud. The data base will hold trivial data and this web site will allow users to play with it.
The second phase of the design says late, this web site will allow users to access conpany's another application already exists on the cloud.
So the questions are
1) is it ok to have everything on the cloud with little traffic?
2) can multiple application may interact with single application? how would they manage API's?
3) Can we interact with multiple data providers at the same time, for example bloomberg,factset etc at the same with on the cloud?
