Data Services – Can be ADO.NET or SQL – What’s the difference

Just a while ago I was talking about Data Services and suddenly a confusion between ADO.NET Data Services and SQL Data Services took place, because we were talking about different Data Services, and so in order to try to clarify the differences I remembered to write this post.

There are two types of Data Services that are:

  • SQL Data Services
    • Cloud – at this moment is being converted from ACE (Activity, Container and Entity)  to TDS (Tabular Data Stream) as I’ve presented in this post.
    • In this case we are talking about a Database in the Cloud and the ultimate desire will be to just change the ConnectionString used.


Hope it helps you get the confusions out of discussions on this topic.
