Welcome to cloud computing!, It’s called Windows Azure Table storage

I’m following the well written course Windows Azure architect (http://www.windowsazurearchitect.com), it provides the training as if you’re following the training of a couple of employees at company X. It’s written in a very interactive way. Mostly after each section/explanation, the ‘employees’ have some ‘smart’ comments/questions..…after reading the section on table storage, i couldn’t help laughing when it involved creating table storage by code;
client.CreateTable("demoTable");
“Developer” puts on an unhappy face…..
“But this is not a real Create Table statement”, he says. “There‟s just the table name and nothing about the column names, the column data types, or column constraints such as null and not null.”?
“Trainer” gives him a broad smile;
“Welcome to cloud computing!” he says. “It’s called Windows Azure Table Storage!”
