New Era for OLTP databases

Coming out of hibernation to blog. Made exciting with our new launch of the SQL data fabric.

I think you will find the use of prezi fascinating. Would love to get some feedback on the presentation. All this is still very preliminary and we will be sharing a lot more details in the days ahead.
