And in my last blog post, I talked about the dichotomy between smart databases and smart applications. I asked whether we can have smart databases that can scale on the cloud.

Business of Data The data center autopilot will have big consequences and there is not enough recognition of the likely impact. Every company should be moving towards autopilot-style datacenters as fast as possible, in whatever mix of on-prem and public cloud makes sense.
