Azure SQL Data Warehouse - New Cloud offering

Microsoft launched a new cloud based data warehousing services with 21 partners on 24th of June. Microsoft announced this offerings during build developer conference in Aril in San Francisco (

As usual Microsoft designed the SQL data warehouse for databases in the range of 5TB to 10TB. 
Well, that is way too small. As this a limited public preview it will definitely change when it comes operational. 

I personally believe this is indeed a very good move both for Microsoft and for businesses that cannot afford to buy the PDW appliance.
