Data-tier applications (DAC) were introduced in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. A DAC provides a single unit for authoring, deploying, and managing the data-tier objects instead of having to manage them separately. Learn how to develop and deploy a DAC from scratch, how to create a DAC from an existing database, how to declare intent (such as which version and edition of SQL Server and the OS is required) when deploying, and how to manage DACs with SQL Server Management Studio in conjunction with SQL Server 2008 R2 utility control points (UCPs). We also illustrate deployment to SQL Azure Database using Data Tier Applications and moving data and schema with the new DAC Import-Export Service. #TEDBI309
