.NET, cloud computing
It is interesting when Microsoft describes an Open Data Protocol (OData) protocol to let .NET clients grab data from data sources via a REST interface working with ADO.NET Data Services. It is interesting again when the IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale REST data service also implements HTTP client using OData and ADO.NET Data Services. Just before Christmas, IBM announced full product integration with support. This means such apps can run on grid – can cloud be far behind?
