SQL Azure: Your Database in the Cloud

August 24, 2009

I have availed of the free Community Technology Preview of SQL Azure Database. I have not actually done anything on it yet except that I have created a test database (the maximun number of database allowed for the CTP is 5). If and when I get a chance to play around with it (but the question is “if I will actually play around with it”), I’ll probably post one or a couple of blogs about it (although I doubt that I will actually have the time to do it). Here are some screen captures that I took:

AZURE_01

Creating the server is a breeze. Just slap in an admin Username and password then you’re good to go to creating your database.

AZURE_02

There is nothing easier than have your stuff in a simple and intutive dashboard as you can see in the figure above.

AZURE_03

There goes the master database. Click the button “Create Database” then you will have simple options to create the database.  SQL Azure Database provides you three Connection Methods to your data sources on the cloud. These are ADO.NET, OLE DB and ODBC.

The following are some of the resources for the SQL Server Azure:

MSDN –  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee336279.aspx

Windows Azure Platform Training Kit – http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=413E88F8-5966-4A83-B309-53B7B77EDF78&displaylang=en

Enjoy!
