CloudSpokes: From Microsoft Azure to Database.com

CloudSpokes: From Microsoft Azure to Database.com:

CloudSpokes, an Appirio-led community rearchitected their solution from Windows Azure to Salesforce’s Database.com:

Initially, Messinger said, his team was really happy with Windows Azure’s table storage and blob storage features, but trouble arose when it came to deploying computing resources called “Web Roles.” […]

Additionally, said Messinger, Windows Azure required some level of database-administration know-how, which is something the CloudSpokes didn’t really want to deal with. It wanted to focus on the front end and other business-critical aspects rather than on DBA work. So it looked to Database.com, and Messinger and Singh haven’t looked back since beginning the transition in mid-July.

This is the first time I’m reading a scenario where DaaS (database as a service) is explicitely mentioned as the main reason for migrating the architecture of an application.
