Data Mining in the Cloud

I’ve mentioned Microsoft’s Data Mining site in a previous post – it’s well worth a look if you are interested in the Data Mining capabilities of SQL Server 2005 or 2008.  There’s good coverage of the excellent Excel Data Mining add-in for SQL Server 2005 and 2008 plus links to lots of good training material and Webcasts.  

In the past week they have also released a Data Mining in the Clouds sample.  This lets you try out many of the features that the Excel add-in gives you, but instead of connecting to your own Analysis Services server you connect to a Microsoft Cloud Service.  You can try it out in a browser by visiting this site, or there is an option to download a new Excel 2007 add-in specifically for connecting to the cloud service.
