Astoria – an always online database for your applications

 Sub Heading 5

Over the last couple of month’s Microsoft have been releasing some pretty cool technologies.

Today they continued that tradition with there new product offering “Astoria”.

“What’s Astoria?” you ask.

Simply put Astoria is an online database that your applications can read/write to. 

I see a great relationship forming between my “SilverLight 1.1 project” and “Astoria”. iTunes has personalized information like playlists, where better to store that information then in “Astoria”.

So over the next couple of day’s im going to prototype integrating Astoria into “Project SilverLight 1.1”. Exactly what im going to store in Astoria im still yet to decide but none-the-less i need to prototype this technology integration.

Stay tuned for the upcomming post…

[update: i’ve been trying to create an example  based on astoria and my silverlight project 1.1 but astoria keeps going down. So i’ve given up for the time being. I’ll come back to this when astoria is more stable, when it announces beta or something equivalent]

  1. I have had the same problem. I was able to create some basic entities and then the site would not work or give me the good old “Page validation error”.

    You would figure MS people would know how to write JavaScript/AJAX code prooperly 🙂

    Not to hijack this thread, but, I’m looking for a financial advisor that was named as my parents’ retirement manager. I’m really frustrated over this at the moment because I trust my parents judgement, and want to use the same advisors but, i can’t find them in any of the local directories online. Carlton Financial Group – 106 Mission Ct #701 Franklin, TN 37067 phone (615) 794-2536 Does anyone know of an industry association or directory that I can use to find this company?

  5. I have recently started a blog, the information you offer on this website has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work.

  6. Not only does this make your life miserable! As long as there
    is Internet connectivity. Depending on the amount of money on it.
    Everybody has questions about them, and you now need to restore
    Online Backup Reviews file of original database also gets corrupted,
    damaged and deleted.
