The video my talk about the future of relational databases on the cloud at the recent Cloud Computing Conference Greece is now available. The deck of the presentation is online too.

In a short journey to databases on the cloud, we will compare different approaches and services, explore the main benefits and limitations of a serverless RDBMS versus a more traditional managed database.
