I'm in the financial industry. We've purchased a data warehouse solution that allows us to maintain critical and sensitive data on-site. If MS continues their push to the cloud, I'll have to adopt a non-Microsoft database technology. And believe me, I won't be alone.


I have a client that is in the same boat.

IMHO - they need to tread very cautiously toward the cloud. That said, the cloud is an acceptable solution for many situations - just not all.

Whenever I hear of depending on the cloud I think of this Stargate Episode. Then there is the Outer Limits. Let alone any of the rest of the similar SF stories.

I can't find it but I seem to remember an Outer Limits where the data is always changing in the memories of every body. But one guy grabbed every non-fiction book from the library so he knew the truth. And he started teaching others not to belive the computer.

A little bit of this and a little byte of that can cause bloatware.

There's only a few reasons we and our clients use SQL Server. It works, it's mostly cost effective, it can be installed on premise and no one has gotten fired yet for suggesting it, (aka name recognition/trust). (We will ignore interoperability since currently the applications we write are the main way our clients access the data.)

Now here's the problem for Redmond. Other solutions work, are cheaper and don't require/pimp the cloud. So name recognition/trust/lockin is the only thing keeping competitors at bay. If you don't require the "whole stack" of SQL Server, you might not need it at all. Also, if I can provide a service that doesn't require any MS software to my clients via a private/semi-private cloud or an on-premise service, what's Microsoft to do? There's more to OSS than Hadoop and PostgreSQL. Through a browser, no one knows you are a dog, or necessary what software the server runs.
