Data in the cloud and on-premise: A Look at the Forthcoming SQL Azure Services – SQL Azure Data Sync and SQL Azure Reporting
In addition to SQL Azure Database, new SQL Azure services will be available in the near future. In this session you’ll learn about the capabilities of these new services, in what scenarios they can be used and see them in action. Data movement capabilities are critical for cloud-based applications; with SQL Azure Data Sync you will be able to share data between on-premises SQL Server and SQL Azure databases as well as between multiple SQL Azure databases, allowing you to link on-premises and cloud-based applications and make data available to users around the world. Reporting and visualization of data stored in SQL Azure will be enabled with SQL Azure Reporting. See how reports can be authored, deployed and made available to users on the web or embedded in applications.
